St Fursey’s Church is an Orthodox Christian community in Stalham, Norfolk, serving the beautiful Norfolk Broads area of England. The Orthodox Church is the ancient Christian Church founded by Jesus Christ and our faith has been handed down by the Apostles’ successors in every generation to the present day. Our parish is part of the Patriarchate of Antioch: the current Patriarch, John X, is the 167th successor to St Peter as bishop of Antioch.
We seek to bear witness to the ancient Christian heritage of the British Isles, and our patron saint is Saint Fursey who founded a Christian monastery in the seventh century only 20 miles away at Burgh Castle. Orthodoxy is a living, experiential faith, and we warmly invite visitors to “come and see” and experience our life in Christ.
Services are normally celebrated at our church in Stalham, unless indicated otherwise:

A New Chapel!
After many years of searching and prayer, we have been fortunate enough to purchase the old police station in Stalham. With thanks to all our generous donors, our wonderful church is now finished – do come along and see for yourself. You will be made most welcome.
