St. Mary's Church

Welcome to St Mary's Church, Newton Flotman

We are a village church with a congregation of all ages and an informal family feel.

Our worship is simple but includes both traditional and modern music and approaches.

On the first Sunday there is a traditional 8am Holy Communion.

On the second Sunday young people and old worship together in Family Communion with some separate activities.

On the first Sunday of the month, there is a a Cafe Church in the School.  On fourth Sundays the adult worship has more space for quiet reflection and the children spend more time in "Special Agents" with crafts, bible stories, worship songs, prayer and games. We try to share God's love in practical ways too, especially through serving within our own village. Why not explore the information on this page and join us for some or all of our activities.We are a village church with a congregation of all ages and an informal family feel.

Newton Flotman is very engaged with the wider community and is currently seeking to reorder the church for wider community use.  More details of our plans can be found on the downloadable leaflet at the bottom of the home page of this site and you can give on line at

Keep Calm and Carry On…


With the gradual easing of lockdown comes a host of further concerns…how to interpret the new rules, how to make things work in new and different ways, how to move into the future leaving behind what is no longer of benefit but taking with us lessons learned and the good we’ve gained.


This will be a ‘work in progress’ for some time to come.  Meanwhile we keep on keeping on….


The church is making good use of technology and digital resources to help negotiate our way through the current challenge.  As well as our own Zoom service, the Diocese of Norwich website  offers links to services of worship and a variety of useful resources to help maintain and nurture our spiritual life.  Likewise


I’d like to highlight the ministry of Canon J.John who delivers spiritual truth with good humoured wisdom.  At you’ll find ‘Word for the Day’ ‘Facing the Canon’ and ‘The J.John Podcast’.  From the site menu you can access his blog – I particularly recommend exploring this for many articles reflecting on our current situation.


There are two excellent Christian radio stations offering music, teaching, interviews, articles and news, which I encourage you to check out: and


If you haven’t already discovered as a source of encouraging preaching, I suggest going there to find a wealth of teaching from HTB Church (Holy Trinity Brompton), among others.  There is an almost endless list of ministries on YouTube – particularly from ‘across the pond’.  Discernment is needed when ‘surfing the net’ for good teaching – it’s usually apparent when something is whacky, or slightly off track.  If in doubt, ask!  Always take the Berean approach (Acts 17:11) and you won’t go far wrong!


With my prayers and every blessing
