The combination of sandy beaches, friendly market towns, beautiful countryside, good schools, the excellent 'capital' city of Norwich and the Norfolk Broads mean that the county of Norfolk has been placed in the top ten in the country in terms of quality of life.


Dating back to 630, the Diocese has a population of 850,000 and with 648 church buildings, 577 parishes, and 26,410 on our electoral rolls, there are plenty of opportunities to work together in mission and ministry. We offer good support
