St Andrew and St Peter Church stands proud on a hill with the tower visible from East and West as you approach the village of Blofield. It is the largest church between Great Yarmouth and Norwich.

Over the years Blofield Church has provided solace, a warm welcome and inspiration for many thousands of parishioners and visitors.

All who enter the church, looking for a place of worship and prayer or to attend one of the many activities or events on offer, will be welcomed in the refurbished community area in the West End.

Prayers For Healing

Blofield church is open every day for people to visit or to be still and pray for the work of the church, our families, our own community and the wider world.

On Monday mornings, 9.00am – 9.45am, we will come together, to help carry the burden through prayer and faith, for those in need of healing in our church family and known to us as individuals. All are welcome to join for this quiet time of prayer.
