Hello and a warm welcome to the website for the 7 Church of England churches that serve Billingford, Brockdish, Harleston, Needham, Redenhall, Scole, Thorpe Abbotts, and Wortwell. Each of our Churches has its own character but all seek to express a warm and loving faith, both during our worship and throughout the week.

Here, you will find details of what we believe, our worship programme and events (spiritual and social). I hope you find what you are looking for but please get in touch if you want to know more.

God bless,

Sharing love & Good News

In our 7 churches we seek to deepen our faith, individually and together, including through our Weekly Worship, Children's Work, Mothers' Union, Prayer 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 and Foodbank. 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
