The Church Buildings Commission
The Church Buildings Commission launched in January 2022 with the purpose of looking at the church buildings across Norfolk and Waveney in terms of their use and sustainability for the future.
The Diocese of Norwich has more medieval churches than almost any other Diocese. In fact, there are a total of 658 church buildings in the Diocese of Norwich covering Norfolk and Waveney. 95 per cent are listed, 50 are located in populations of less than 50. The long-term sustainability of this very large number of churches needs positive and workable solutions.
The Commission will consult widely and make recommendations on its findings in a report to the Bishop of Norwich and the Bishop’s Council in 2023. The Commission would like to hear from anyone in the community who has an interest in church buildings across Norfolk and Waveney.
You can contribute via a dedicated email address. Please email : email@example.com with your comments. Or write to: Church Buildings Commission, Diocesan House, 109 Dereham Road, Easton, Norwich, NR9 5ES.
