All Saints, Wood Norton is one of thirteen churches in the Heart of Norfolk Group (benefice), forming part of the Sparham Deanery in the Diocese of Norwich. Our church dates back in places to the 13th century and sits in an attractive, well-maintained churchyard, the whole ensemble forming a focal point of our village.
Elsewhere on this site you can read about its history; wildlife conservation in the churchyard; meetings, events and activities which support the church and its community, and details of the church services.

Church Services – from August 2017
We are pleased to report that the church is now open for services – please see the Services page. Please note, however, that whilst work is continuing in the church on the development of the community hub, the church may not be open at all times to the public.
Church renovations – ongoing work until late Autumn 2017
We are pleased to report, that after two years of hard work by the Parochial Church Council, funding has been obtained from The Heritage Lottery Fund, North Norfolk District Council, and Allchurches Trust to ensure the significant restoration and development of All Saints. The list of repairs includes re-tiling of the Chancel, Nave and Vestry roofs, making good the parapets, and East Chancel and East Nave gables, re-leading the East Chancel window, overhauling the South Nave and South Chancel rainwater goods and repairing the Tower. Developing into a community hub, the Church will feature a permanent exhibition on the village history and will benefit from an upgrading of the heating system, the installation of a kitchen and toilet, and the provision of new video projection and loop sound systems.
During this time, the church will be closed, with work scheduled to begin on 14 November 2016. Access to the churchyard will not be affected, and details of the Memorial Inscriptions and Memorial Information (including a plan of the memorials in the church and churchyard), usually available in the church, can be obtained from Joanne Burd (01362 683800) or Ivor Wells (01362 684287), so please do contact them if you are looking for information on the burials in the churchyard.
