Services for November will be on Sundays at 11.00 am on the 1st, 15th, 22nd and 29th November. The services on Sunday 1st and 15th November will be communion services.
On Sunday 8th November there will be a short act of remembrance by the War Memorial starting at 10.45 am. There will be Evening Prayers in the church at 3 pm.
Please do join us at these services, everyone is welcome. No 8.00 am services or Wednesday mid-week services are currently planned. Please understand that our worship will certainly feel different for some time to come and we are seeking to find the best way forward in circumstances that are still challenging. All social events are still suspended until further notice.
Blofield Church is now open for private prayer on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9.30am – dusk..

Tony Buttolph has composed a light hearted Bible quiz for church folk and friends to have a go at. His instructions for the quiz are at the top of the page. It is hoped that it will raise a little money for our churches too. The cost is £1.50 with a prize for the winner of £10.00.
Completed quizzes, with your name and contact number, can be placed in the box provided at the back of each church where there is a pot for your contribution. All completed quizzes must be returned by the 25th November. The winner will be announced by email and in church on Sunday 29th November.
You can download the quiz by clicking here.
We will continue to offer our online worship to run alongside our reinstated services. In addition, printed copies of the service and sermon/reflection will be available for distribution after each service.
We have created an archive of all the online services our rector has produced since the Coronavirus lockdown started. You can access this archive through the following link:

If you know someone who does not have access to the internet and might appreciate this service then please pass on the number. Calls are free of charge.
The Paston family wrote a prodigious number of letters in the 15th century which have been saved and teach us much of life in those times. Edward Paston, 1550 – 1630, had a Manor House in Blofield and was buried in Blofield Church. One of the most prominent Norfolk families is getting a huge boost from the Heritage Lottery Fund – and it will enable people across the county and beyond to join up the dots in its 300 year history.
The 600 Paston Footprints Project will, over a three year period, engage with 11 key centres in Norfolk (Paston, Bacton, North Walsham, Gresham, Mannington, Oxnead, Hellesdon, Blofield, Mautby/Caister, Norwich and Dereham) to work with and support local community groups, schools, walkers, churches, museums and the owners of key sites, to provide resources, information boards, events, activities, workshops, podcasts, booklets, and maps of heritage trails and cycle routes. Look out for Blofield’s part in this exciting venture.
