St. Peter's Church, Mattishall Burgh
Welcome to St. Peter's Church, Mattishall Burgh.
St. Peter's church, Mattishall Burgh, is situated off the bottom end of Burgh Lane in Mattishall. The church building had been closed some years back, but has been re-opened and about 6 services are held here each year once a month on a Sunday afternoon between about May and October. The churchyard at St. Peter's is always open and there is a free car park.
The services here are more traditional than those at All Saints' Church up the hill at the other end of Burgh Lane.

Drop In Coffee Morning
Posted: Sat, 8 Sep, 2018 (2 weeks ago) by Church Office
We hold a coffee morning on Thursdays from 9.30 until 12.00 which is a nice place to meet new friends and to chat to those you already know. There is no specific charge but we do suggest a small donation of £1 to cover our expenses. We serve hot and cold drinks, as many as you want, cakes on the tables and at around 11am we serve toasted tea cakes. We have celebration events such as our Christmas Dinner and occasional buffet lunches which are all great fun. We can also arrange lifts for anyone unable to walk there or who is without transport so it is ideal for those who can not always get out and about.
The majority of people are aged over 50, however we have had some younger people come along recently and that is great. It is important for us to have events that cross the generations. It also means that we could then have some younger people who can help out in the kitchen.
At the moment anyone on the rota for helping out in the kitchen is on duty around every 4 weeks. This does not however give us much scope to cover holidays or illness so we would really love to have a few more volunteers on our list. The more people we have the less often each person is on the rota. It would be great to get us back to a situation where each person is only on duty once every 6 weeks.
It is actually quite rewarding being in the kitchen. Part of the duty is to greet people as they come in and ask what they would like to drink. If it is someone new you may be the first person they speak to. There are always at least 2 people in the kitchen together so you are never just left there on your own. It only involves making drinks, collecting up cups and washing up. Toasting the teacakes is usually done by one of the regular helpers, although it is fine for anyone to do that as well.
If you are interested in coming along and/or helping out just turn up on a Thursday and ask for Lizzie.
If you would like to ring me my number is 01362 850491.
(You do have to announce who you are as we have call guardian to stop all those nuisance calls getting through.)
