St Peter & St Paul's
EAST HARLING Church
Welcome to this friendly and inviting church, which is steeped in history and draws visitors from around the country. East Harling Church is a hidden treasure in the heart of Breckland.
St Peter and St Paul's has stood at the centre of village life since at least the thirteenth century. Our parish church offers celebration in times of joy and solace in times of loss and challenge. We pray that our faith in God speaks through our worship and our lives lived in this community.
The beautiful building we see today contains many medieval treasures not least of which is its East Window described by David King as: “The most important collection of 15th century glass by Norwich glass painters outside that city.” Download the 'Friends of East Harling Church' leaflet: we'd love to hear from you. If you'd like to become a supporter of the Friends, and you're a tax-payer, here is a gift aid form.
East Harling is normally open for visitors from the start of April through to the end of September. It is open Monday to Saturday from 10 am to 4pm.

Getting to Know Christ Better
Posted: Tue, 9 May, 2017 (5 months ago) by Stuart
David’s sermon on Sunday morning 30 April was based on the gospel reading from Luke 24, “On the Road to Emmaus”.
Verse 32 says: The 2 disciples asked each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?” (the scriptures that Jesus opened to the disciples on the road to Emmaus were from what we now call the Old Testament). Rev. David emphasised how the disciples came to recognise Christ through the scripture being explained to them; if we want to know Christ better, then we too need to spend time getting to know the Bible better. David recommended using the Bible Reading Fellowship resources to assist in this.
Alternatively there are various daily reading study notes available.
There is also the option of joining a Bible Study Group if you prefer to study scripture in a discussion environment.
If you would like help to take this further, please speak to David (01953 717140 / firstname.lastname@example.org)
