Church and Community

St Nicholas Church is centrally placed in Dereham just off the Market Square and maintains close links with the local community and, through our mission partners, into the wider world.

The church is part of and central to the community and it reaches out to the town in a variety of ways.  We consider that we should always be a presence for the whole of the town when needed.

In addition to the usual weekly services, special services such as the annual Festival of Remembrance in November and the Battle of Britain service in September provide a civic occasion for the whole community.  The magnificent building is also ideal for concerts and recitals with many musicians making use of the facilities.

If you wish to book the church for a similar function then please contact the Parish office in the first instance.
