Welcome to the website for the parishes of Shotley, Chelmondiston, Harkstead and Erwarton.
Like everyone else, we are finding our way into living with the outbreak of the Coronavirus. The website is being adapted as quickly as we can. Please use the Contact facility under the “Other” tag at the top of this page to be in touch when you want us to pray and/or phone you. We may not be able to visit, but will do our best to help in whatever way we can!

Revd Canon Liesbeth Oosterhof


God of compassion,
be close to those who are ill, afraid or in isolation.
In their loneliness, be their consolation;
in their anxiety, be their hope;
in their darkness, be their light;
through him who suffered alone on the cross,
but reigns with you in glory,
Jesus Christ our Lord.
