St Nicholas Church

Warm and Welcoming Traditional Anglican Worship

St Nicholas Church, Bracon Ash is always open and visitors are very welcome to explore this attractive and ancient church. There is room for cars to park on the grass verge outside the church gate. Alternatively the elderly and disabled are welcome to drive up the church path itself, by arrangement with the churchwarden.

There are two services a month.  Morning Prayer is on the first Sunday in the month at 9.00 and Holy Communion is on the third Sunday at 9.00.

The services follow the Traditional Common Worship pattern. Festivals are shared with Hethel Church and the rest of the benefice.  The notice board outside the church is always up to date.

We also hold a Messy Church every school holiday and half term break for children and their families.

Morning Prayer in Advent

 Do you long to find a space to think? Do you wish you could find a place to pray?

Then why not join us for Morning Prayer during Advent in the beautiful, tranquil and peaceful surroundings of Bracon Ash Church on Friday mornings from 9:15 - 9:45am. During our time together we will be lighting the Advent wreath, seeking God's peace, reading the Bible, and praying for the needs of the world, others and ourselves. 

We will also have our prayer tree available, where you can come and write a prayer for a person, situation, or remember a loved one who has died.

Everyone is welcome and you don't need to be an experienced pray-er to join in. You are also welcome to come and sit quietly whilst others pray in the church. Refreshments are also available.

Bracon Ash Church can be found on School Road. Travelling from Mulbarton south on the B1113, turn first right after the roundabout and continue along School Road. The church is situated on the left, opposite Bracon Hall. Click on the link to find a map of the area on Google maps Bracon Ash Church
