Centre for Parish Church Studies Day School

Norwich, city of churches – Dr Nick Groves (Director, Centre for Parish Church Studies)

Saturday 30 April 2022 │ 10:00-16:00 │ in person event

St Martin at Palace Church, 15 St Martin at Palace Plain, Norwich, NR3 1RW


Norwich is known for its many mediaeval churches, and we shall start off by looking at them, and how they have survived and contributed to the city for almost a thousand years. But we shall also look at the huge variety of other places of worship within the city walls – monasteries and dissenting chapels, and maybe even the odd synagogue and mosque – which lead to Norwich having such a rich religious landscape.
