All Saints' Church
A welcoming parish church at the heart of the community.
"In a short space of time we have felt that we belong and it now seems that ASM is where we should be."
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.
Hope to see you soon!

A Time for Reflection
Posted: Sat, 29 Sep, 2018 (2 weeks ago) by Mark
Is it because “we look back” to summer, as the mnemonic for the change from British Summer Time goes, that autumn is a time for looking back? We have harvest – a time to look back at the year and give thanks for God’s provision. We have Remembrance Day, especially this year as we come up to the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1 on Sunday 11th November with services in each village. We have our annual Memorial Service on the 25th November. All these events combine the flavours of thanksgiving, commemoration and remembrance, in different measure.
Therefore we will be continuing the sermon series started in September called “Generous: Our God. Our Call” as we use the Harvest time to reflect on our response to God’s generosity. For the details of this series please check back to September’s Benefice News or the website.
On the 28th October, there will be just one service across the Benefice as Bishop Jonathan comes to licence Sally as Assistant Priest, at Yaxham at 10:30. This licencing will not change the character of what she does, but is an outward mark of Sally’s own response to the generous God who called her into ministry. Over the last few years Sally’s role as a Priest who is called from the local community and stays here has developed, and so this new designation of Assistant Priest, shared with other Locally Ordained Ministers across the Diocese, will recognise that new role.

Coming into Mattishall from the Norwich end, All Saints's church will be clearly on your left. Turn left just before it and after about 100 metres on your right is a car park at the entrance to the churchyard and opposite Victoria stores. This location has a post code of NR20 3QF and is best used if coming by car. More parking can be found just off the main road (Dereham Road) on Old School Green (NR20 3FG) or along the main road itself There is also an hourly bus service which stops opposite the church (route 4 from KonectBus) which comes from Norwich and Dereham.
If coming to the church from the western end of the village, continue to the far end of the village. All Saints' church will be very clearly on your right. Turn right immediately past it to come to the car park mentioned above.
