Our Team Vicar, David Hagan-Palmer, says: “The way we worship will be slightly different due to the restrictions placed upon us by the Covid-19 requirements so please follow instructions and be patient with us as we settle into this new way of doing things.  Do not feel you have to rush back to church, simply return when you are ready to do so as after all, as I keep saying, the church is wherever you are and you worship wherever you find yourself – God is more than four walls and a roof.”

The usual virtual/Facebook Bure Valley Service will take place, but at the revised time of  at 12:30pm using the attached Trinity Service Sheets. (Please keep these sheets for future occasions.)  You will be able to access the service in the usual manner.


In response to the latest national lockdown and the Government message to stay home due to the rise of COVID cases, especially in Norfolk, a decision has been taken by the ministers and Church Councils of the Aylsham & District Team Ministry to suspend Public Worship in the Team’s Churches which includes the churches of the Bure Valley.

This will be for January and the decision will be reviewed as to whether it should continue into February depending on the situation the country finds itself in at the time.

Many of our churches will however remain open for private prayer so you are able to go and sit quietly in prayer and reflection. The following churches in the Bure Valley are open during the day:

Brampton – Saturday and Sunday

Burgh-next-Aylsham – Everyday

Buxton – Monday to Friday

Lammas – Thursday to Sunday

Marsham – Saturday and Sunday

Oxnead – Everyday

There will also be an online service via every Sunday at 12:30pm
