Very sadly, all churches are shut for worship, though East Winch and North Runcton will be open for private prayer every Wednesday from 10-12.
An informal recorded service including material for children will appear on YouTube twice a month. The next one will be on 14th February. Find it under Middlewinch Worship Services.

We are attempting to put on a more formal service by zoom for the Benefice. Please would anyone who wishes to be emailed about this contact Rev. Riaz. -

Dcember 2020

From 27 December

Church services in the Middlewinch Benefice have been suspended until further notice.

With the permission of the Bishop of Norwich, and effective from 27th. December, all church services in the Middlewinch Benefice have been suspended until further notice.

This decision has been brought about by the spread of the Covid virus and the placing of Norfolk into Tier 4.
The Benefice will provide on-line, pre recorded, services.
