Welcome to the Church of Our Lady Saint Mary South Creake
Visitors to this website, just like our real visitors, come for many different reasons and with differing levels of knowledge about the Christian faith, about church buildings and church history. We have tried to design the site so, whoever you are and whatever your needs, you will find the information you want.
We have therefore quite deliberately built the site with two starting points. If you know your Common Worship from your Book of Common Prayer, your Clerestory from your Chancel and your Anglo-Catholic from your Evangelical, go to About us.
And if that sounds like gobbledygook but you want to know more about our beautiful church and why we love it, go to Visitors.
We also have a FAQs page where we answer, or attempt to answer, some of the more commonly asked questions about our Church and our Christian faith.
But if none of those are right for you, maybe we are being too clever so just dive right in.
Fr Clive runs in Archdeacon's Charge
Fr Clive has started his training for this annual event being held on Bank Holiday Monday 6 May at Raynham Hall near Fakenham.
Set up by the Archdeacon of Lynn, the Venerable John Ashe, the Charge is an opportunity to join others in walking or running anywhere from 3 to 10 miles to raise money to support the life-saving work of the East Anglian Air Ambulance and the Church’s work in the parishes of the Diocese of Norwich.
More information on this event can be found on the Diocesan website.
