Sharing love & Good News

In our benefice of 7 churches we are seeking to deepen our faith, individually and together, including our Weekly Worship, Children's Work, Mothers' Union, Prayer Groups and House Groups. To ensure our young people get the very best start in life we do all that we can to support our schools. Being part of a wider community we support and promote our local businesses and community organisations. Generosity is central to our faith so we seek to help all who are finding life hard through our Pastoral Care Scheme which arranges visits and supports for those in need locally. We support the work of Foodbank, collecting food and St. John's acts as a distribution centre in Harleston. We also help our community further afield through our support of The Matthew Project, Christian Aid, Compassion and other agencies in this country and around the world. 


Initial enquiries about Weddings, Baptisms, and Funerals should be made to the Benefice Administrator for Scole and Redenhall: Ms Lucy Elton

C/0 Revd Nigel Tuffnell, 10 Swan Lane, Harleston, Norfolk. IP20 9AN
Monday to Friday 9.00am to 1.00pm

Telephone: 01379 851148

Lucy will then get in touch with the Revd Nigel Tuffnell or one of the other clergy to see you about the service and other arrangements. If urgent at other times please contact the Revd Nigel Tuffnell direct.

In the case of urgent Pastoral or Confidential needs or in the case of someone dying, please get in touch with one of the clergy who are on call 24/7
See Ministers


The Team brings pastoral care in the way of visits to the bereaved, companionship to lonely people and those in distress, and to anyone referred to them by the clergy, or our local doctors or nurses. This is done on a completely confidential basis and voluntary basis and is co-ordinated by Nigel and Gill Mutimer. Please contact Revd. Nigel Tuffnell, in the first instance.
