St Peter & St Paul's


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.

For further information please phone Mr Ray Finch on 01953 717289.
