St. Andrew’s stands at the entrance to the Norfolk village of Great Ryburgh, close to the bridge over the River Wensum. This round tower church with Saxon origins is a distinctive feature of a village that is essentially a working community with a maltings, some light industry and a shop that has been retained as a community venture. 

The cruciform design of the church building is unusual, each arm  of the cross being almost equal in length.The reordering of the Chancel in 1912 by Sir Ninian Comper gives the building a wonderful feeling of space and light as well as a flexibility of use which the parish uses to full advantage for its services, community events and concerts. 

St. Andrew's, Great Ryburgh is part of the Upper Wensum Benefice. The Revd. Robin Stapleford looks after seven parishes with the help of a number of retired clergy who give generously of their time.  Currently he is also looking after a neighbouring benefice.

Visitors are welcome every day of the week.

Our church building has been here for over 1,000 years and we try to ensure it is a welcoming and inspiring place for worshippers, local residents, visitors and pilgrims.

 

The William Martin Building with its much needed handwashing and hospitality facilities is fully in use. We wonder how we ever managed without it! We are so grateful to those who built it and to those who donated materials, labour and funds.  The  Jubilee Window was returned to the church in time for it to be blessed and dedicated on Remembrance Sunday. Thanks go to the many who donated to the Restoration Fund  and also to The Round Tower Churches Society, The Norfolk Churches Trust, The Benefact Trust and  Crispmalt. Thanks to Peter, the porch roof has now been repaired and the interior cleaned and refurbished to great effect.

 

JOINTING AND REPOINTING 23/24:  The current project is the repointing of the north and west nave walls,  together with repairs to the east and south walls at ground level where the walls meet the perimeter channel.  Any donations would be very helpful to ensure we can complete the project on time.  Not a glamorous task but a very necessary one to avoid costly bills in the future!

 

Pilgrims walking the Walsingham Way are very welcome.

We can offer a place to camp, kitchen and W.C. as well as basic shelter if the weather is bad. You can contact the churchwarden on 01328 829413.
