Welcome to the website for the parishes of Shotley, Chelmondiston, Harkstead and Erwarton.
Now most of the restrictions to manage the risk of Covid have been lifted, we will be singing again during our services! Hurray! Information about services can be found under “What’s on” on the weekly pew/news sheet. Any questions, please be in touch using the Contact facility under the “Other” tag. We will do our best to help in whatever way we can!

A prayer of St Francis:

Lord help me to live this day quietly, peacefully.
To lean upon your great strength trustfully, restfully.
To wait for the unfolding of your will patiently, serenely.
To meet others peacefully, joyously.
To face tomorrow confidently, courageously.
In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
