Everybody is welcome at all our services.

St John's, Timberhill is the main Anglican Church of the Catholic tradition in the heart of Norwich.  We are a Church Family of all ages and backgrounds, and we seek to offer uplifting worship, support and friendship, opportunities for service, and inspiration for daily living.  We try to live and share the 'abundant life' which Jesus came to bring.  The main service of the week is at 11am every Sunday, lasts about an hour and a quarter and is always followed by refreshments.

The parish also includes St Julian's Church, which houses the site of the cell in which dwelt the Lady Julian of Norwich, anchoress and visionary, who lived here for many years from the 1390s.  Her Revelations of Divine Love, the earliest surviving book written in English by a woman, has become a spiritual classic known and loved by millions.  The Eucharist is celebrated in Mother Julian's Cell every Sunday at 9am, and on weekdays too.

Services at St John's are held according to the modern rites of the Western Church, celebrated with traditional ceremonial.  At St Julian's the services are diverse and based on Common Worship.

Both churches are open every day for prayer, quiet and visiting, and for daily worship.  We welcome you to come in at any time to find peace and solitude in God's presence.
