All Saints' Church

A welcoming parish church at the heart of the community.

"I love the church because you have the choice of different types of services - the traditional with the beautiful old hymns accompanied by the organ (at the Sunday 9 a.m. service) or the more modern with newer songs, with a mixture of both louder or quieter reflective songs each week (at the Sunday 10.30 a.m. service)."

All Saints’ Church in Mattishall (ASM) is a community of people living in and around Mattishall near Dereham in Norfolk. We meet up on Sundays and at times during the week (in various people’s homes) to worship God and learn together. We would love you to join us, whether as a one-off or more often.

We are a welcoming, supportive and accepting bunch (at least that is what others have told us) as we try to reflect the loving and forgiving nature of God.  With our Sunday services we aim to make people feel at ease with the options of a more traditional service at 9 a.m. (with organ) and a more informal service at 10.30 a.m. (with worship group).

We are a church which takes the bible seriously, trying to allow God to challenge, encourage and change us through it. Our aim is to understand and accept the love of God the Father as shown by Jesus Christ and to be open to the leading of the Holy Spirit.

We hope to see you soon! We have an accessible toilet, baby-changing facilities, (some) parking space available, easy access for wheelchairs and a hearing (induction) loop on the right side of the church. For the various activities, some of which are based in Mattishall and some which are in various places around the benefice, please see the rest of this website.

Outside service times, the church can be visited by borrowing a key from Victoria Stores on Church Plain during shop open times.

Prayer Breakfast for October

Can we please encourage as many of you as possible to come along for a quick coffee and toast and join together in a time or prayer together?  It is so important that we pray together for the extension of God's kingdom, both locally and more widely. Everyone seems to be agreed that prayer should be central to our life as a church. This is a great opportunity for us to help make it so.

For more details, please contact Jackie Clay, Alan or Sue Cossey. Contact details are on the People/ Who's Who page.

Thought for the month - October 2019

I’m sure you will agree what a wonderful summer we’ve had! It’s been a pleasure to be outside, gardening or just relaxing. The farmers have safely gathered in the harvest crops for which I am sure they are thankful.

We live in such a lovely county, I’m amazed at the beauty we have around us. Our God created such a fantastic world, we have so much to thank Him for.

I do hope we remember to thank Him for the good things we have and don’t just pray to Him with a list of requests.

He is always there for us and we can always talk to Him in prayer, He will hear us and He will answer us, it will be in His time and it may be a ‘yes’, it may be ‘no’ or it may be a ‘wait’. He always knows what is best for us.

Prayer isn’t difficult, you just need to talk to Him as you would your best friend. If you would like prayer for anything, or would like to pray with someone, do please contact somebody in any of our churches and they will be only too pleased to be with you, I am sure.

May we continue to appreciate the beauty around us and the different seasons we encounter.

And may we all feel God’s blessing with us at all times.

Thank you,
