The Church of Our Lady Saint Mary South Creake is one of the most beautiful and spiritually uplifting churches in England. Come and visit us - we're open every day of the year. Click here for How to Find Us. Have a browse through our picture Gallery to see our famous angel roof and the other treasures of this amazing north Norfolk church. 

Our Sunday Eucharist is at 9.30 am (for very occasional variations see the Calendar to the right). It's inclusive Common Worship in the Anglo-Catholic tradition with incense and bells. 

On our FAQs page we answer, or attempt to answer, some of the more commonly asked questions about our Church and our Christian faith.

New website for Our Lady Saint Mary

This website was relaunched on 10 January. The new site is still under construction and more content will appear over the next few weeks.

The main reason for this relaunch is to make the site more user friendly on mobile phones and iPads and other tablets. We are also taking the opportunity to create entirely new sites for our sister parishes in the Creakes Benefice. These will also appear over the next few weeks.
