Welcome to The Roughton Benefice website
The Roughton Benefice is a group of 6 congregations with 7 churches just south of Cromer in Norfolk within the Diocese of Norwich. Our churches are open every day of the year.
But church is not just about buildings, beautiful as they are. They bear witness to generations of worship, prayer and service to God and our communities. The real essence of church is people.
It is also about how we relate to God as we walk through life. To find out more about the Christian life, please go to the “Let’s walk together” page. Here you will find more about including Baptisms, Confirmations, Weddings and Funerals.
To help you find your way around this website, we have included a page called “Site Map”.
From time to time churches undertake building projects, either for reasons of necessity or choice to make the buildings more suitable for the coming years. In the Roughton Benefice we have such projects coming up. The first two have been at Felbrigg and Sustead. A third project is at St Mary’s Church, Roughton where we are planning to install water, a kitchen and toilets. We now have all the necessary permissions. Please see the relevant church pages and the “For Your Diary” page to see how your visit to any of our churches might be affected. We apologise for any inconvenience these works may cause, but one emphasis is to get water to our buildings. That will in turn permit the installation of toilets.
We have some Great News. The projects at Sustead and Felbrigg are now completed and the churches back to normal usage!
