Welcome to
Swanton Abbott
Community Chapel

A village church for everyone

Swanton Abbott Community Chapel

is an independent evangelical church in Swanton Abbott, Norfolk. 

We offer everyone a chance to belong, and to grow in their love of God
and for one another, within our beautiful rural community.   
We welcome all ages and backgrounds.

Through the dedication of our leadership and volunteers, we are committed to the teachings of Jesus Christ, and want to help everyone to connect with God,
understand the bible and have a vibrant faith.


We are members of the Evangelical Alliance.

Contact us to find out more about what we do and what we believe,

or simply drop in and see us.

Church isn't always what you imagine it to be - you could be pleasantly surprised!

Sunday Services 11 am

An all age family friendly service lasting about an hour.  Refreshments are served from 10.15am.

Connect Sundays

On the fifth Sunday of the month, we take a more

laid back and informal approach to church,

including a café style layout, interviews, special

themes, and guest speakers.
See our special events page for more details.  If

you're not used to church, these are a good starting

point.  All are welcome!

A chance to enjoy delicious refreshments for free, including homemade cakes.  It's a great opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones in our "chapel café".  Our vision is to serve the community and share the love of Jesus.   All are welcome.

Life group

Every Wednesday

Enjoy the company of others, in a smaller setting,

providing an opportunity to get to know one

another & support each other.  We explore an aspect of the Christian faith via a passage in the bible, pray, & grow in our friendship as we do life together.

Alpha courses

We regularly run Alpha courses, where you can find out more about the Christian faith. We plan to run a new course very soon.   Why not join our waiting list?   

We show a video and have discussions about the meaning of life, and it's a safe environment to ask any question you like.  It is all completely free of charge.

Food For Thought

Held at various times throughout the year

12 noon - 1.30pm

We like to reach out to those in need in our village of Swanton Abbott.     If you know of someone in the village who would benefit from a tasty hot lunch and the company of eating with others, then see our events page for details of when the next one is.  The meal is followed by a brief Pause For Thought. 


Numbers are limited so it's first come, first served.



There is wheelchair access

and a disabled toilet in our chapel.
