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.’

Daily Prayer from Ascension Day to Pentecost 2021
Posted: Thu, 6 May, 2021 (5 hours ago) by Andrea
As the Easter Season draws to a close for another year we enter into the season of Ascension to Pentecost
The Feast of the Ascension is celebrated forty days after Easter Sunday. It is always on a Thursday. The date for 2021 is May 13th. After his crucifixion and resurrection, Holy Scripture tell us he was seen for forty days before he ascended into heaven to be “seated at the right hand of God the Father.” After Jesus’ ascension, the disciples awaited the promised gift of the Holy Spirit in Jerusalem.
There will be an opportunity to celebrate the feast of the Ascension on Thursday 13th May at St Peter’s Yaxham at 7.30pm . Do join us if you are able.
The Day, or Feast of Pentecost celebrates the day when the Holy Spirit came to the disciples as they were gathered in Jerusalem.
We are told in Acts 2 that tongues of fire came to rest on each of them and each were filled with the Holy Spirit.
May our prayer be that by the power of the Holy Spirit we will be inspired and equipped to share the Good news of Jesus Christ with all those we meet.
Services to celebrate Pentecost will be announce shortly.
Further Opportunities to Pray
Morning Prayer will be continuing on Zoom each day at 9am and as always all are welcome. The liturgy and readings for the coming season are in the Resources section of this website or directly from HERE.

To reach St. Mary's Church, we recommend you have a good look at it on Google Maps! If coming from the Dereham direction, bear left off the A47 at turn off marked "N. Tuddenham". Turn right as soon as you are off the A47 then next right into Fox Lane and follow the road over the top of the A47. After passing North Tuddenham village hall on your left, turn right at the crossroads then immediately left. After a short distance on your left side is a sign marking the entrance to a land leading to St. Mary's. There is a small amount of parking space at the end of the lane on your left, but you may wish to swing round at the end and head back out slightly and park on the left side of the lane.
If coming from the Norwich direction, leave the A47 at the exit marked "N. Tuddenham" then turn left onto Fox Lane. Pick up the instructions from that point from those above.
If coming from the Mattishall direction, head down Burgh Lane from Mattishall and at the end, turn left onto an unnamed road marked towards "North Tuddenham". Follow the road, bearing right. Keep on this road until you head slightly down a hill to cross the river Tud and ascend the other side. The entrance to the lane down to St. Mary's is at the top of the hill on your right.
