Reaching out in Love

Building each other up

Communicating the GOOD NEWS!!!

Though Jesus is the Good News!! This Corona virus is Not and so our normal activities continue to be disrupted.

 Please see 'Latest news' page for all the up to date information during this time of constant change

We have a separate page for Corona virus update news and to see this   Please click here

Despite all the restrictions placed on all of us by this virus, we are not defined by it.  We have found new ways to keep in touch, using Facebook, What's App and YouTube, which is good news for those who don't feel comfortable yet with actually attending the building.  Go to to latest news page by clicking here to hear more

         aerial view of Chapel and fields We have been described as a Chapel in the 'middle of nowhere'!! And this picture would tend to show why we're described in such a way, we are in rural Norfolk after all!

          But the Chapel is in fact positioned between the two villages of Bunwell and Carleton Rode, neither of which is more than a few hundred yards away. We see ourselves as very much a part of the community as shown by, for example, our very popular Coffee shop/restaurant, which is open three times a week; a monthly community meal, which regularly attracts up to 60 diners; and a twice-monthly youth club (7 to 12 year olds). 

Our congregation is drawn from surrounding villages and those further afield such as, Long Stratton, Mulbarton, Shropham, Great Moulton, Winfarthing and Wymondham. Despite being without a Pastor, at present, we have a very vibrant church life, with lots going on, including two services on Sundays, prayer meetings and house groups etc.

Please look at the various pages of this web site and discover so much more. What we believe, what we do, with pictures and commentaries. This website is quite new and we’re still learning how to present our Church in the most accessible way. We hope you find the information contained herein to be both informative and useful. We would love your feedback.

We would also love the opportunity to meet with you. You are most welcome to come to any of our services, where you can be assured of a warm welcome.( There are some restrictions, placed on us by the covid virus, see the following pages for details)
