Worship at Lound Church
A WARM WELCOME AWAITS YOU
St. John the Baptist, Lound is a Forward in Faith and a Society church, has a Walsingham cell and maintains a tradition of Anglo-Catholic worship, with music and incense; our regular service is Sung Mass.
We draw our congregation from an area far wider than our parochial boundaries.The church is always open during the day and is much visited by walkers, cyclists and others, often from far afield.
Before Covid restrictions there was a sung ‘Parish Mass’ on three Sundays each month, a pattern which we hope to restore as soon as we are able. Worship is supported by our newly refurbished Harrison & Harrison organ.
On High Days such as Candlemas, Ascension and Corpus Christi the local branch of GSS and CBS gather here for worship.
A little more about our church
AT THE HEART OF YOUR CHRISTIAN LIFE
St. John the Baptist is part of the Somerleyton Benefice, a varied group of six churches; each church with its own tradition and ethos, but which regularly combine to hold a ‘group service’ such as Rogation – out in the fields at Ashby.
In order to safeguard Lound’s distinct traditional catholic identity, the PCC has requested and been granted, pastoral and sacramental oversight from the Bishop of Richborough, who is also an assistant bishop in this Diocese of Norwich. Our Patron is The Society for the Maintenance of the Faith.
