Welcome to The Burnhams Benefice
Thank you for visiting our site
We hope that it will be of use in helping you find out what the Church is up to here in Nelson's home parishes. However, what we really hope for is to get to know you in person. We worship together in a relaxed and, hopefully, meaningful style, both contemporary (Common Worship) and traditional (Book of Common Prayer). A friendly welcome awaits you here, regardless of your tradition or simply if you’re just curious.
All change in the rectory, that is. The current rector, Graham Hitchins, will be retiring in early January. There will be interim arrangements for baptisms and funerals; any weddings currently in the benefice diary will be coordinated by a churchwarden of the relevant parish. The rural dean of the Burnham and Walsingham Deanery, and archdeacon of Lynn will respectively have direct and general oversight of the Benefice. A new rector will be appointed in due course, after consultations, evaluation, and selection procedures.
