St. Mary's Church

Welcome to St. Mary's Church, North Tuddenham

Welcome. For service details and other events happening here, please see pages elsewhere on the website. With the Covid-19 situation changing regularly, please check in the News section.

Unfortunately the deterioration  of the structure of St Mary’s Church Tower, particularly the two buttresses, has meant we have had to put up fencing and warning signs around the west end of the church near the entrance.

The robust fencing is to keep people away from the tower because we have be warned that the possibility of collapse is very real.

We do realise that people may want to tend to the graves of their loved ones at this time of year,  but please be very careful.

We are unable to facilitate visitors to the church at this present time.

We pray that our efforts to secure the required finances to restore the tower will be successful and that work can be started in 2021.’

Worship during the week for All Saints to Advent 2021

Dear Friends,

All Saints tide is almost upon us.  I always feel a great sense of awe at the thought of all the saints that have gone before us, those faithful people who have worshipped where we worship today those folk who prayed for and served their communities with amazing commitment in good times and in bad.  

In this season, throughout the benefice we will be remembering those who gave their lives for the service of our country and also this year we will be remembering all those who have suffered loss as a result of the pandemic. I expect we will all have different memories of how the pandemic has affected each one of us. Loss may have meant the death of a loved one or it may mean loss of a job or a business or the failure of a relationship. For some the isolation has meant a loss of a social life.

Many within our communities are still struggling with the idea of mixing with others.

Please do hold our communities and our church congregations in your prayers as we find ways of re-connecting while staying safe.

We hope that during the week of the 14th -21st November our churches will be open for people to find ‘a space to remember.’

To help us with our prayers, the liturgy and readings for the next month for morning prayer are available from the Resources section of this website or directly from HERE. You are welcome to join us on Zoom each day from 9am  or use the resource on your own or together with others at home.

With every blessing
