NWCT is an Intermediate Body of Churches Together in England covering the whole of Norfolk and those parts of the Waveney area around Lowestoft.

Our work is to enable Christian denominations to work together to spread the Good News that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came to us to rescue us from the penalty of falling short of God’s standards and to offer us his gift of life in Jesus.


Week of Prayer for Christian Unity across Norfolk & Waveney

The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is traditionally celebrated during the octave of  St Peter & St Paul which runs from 18th to 25th January each year .

The theme for January 2019 is based on Deuteronomy 16:18-20, ‘Justice, and only justice, you shall pursue…’

Norwich Capital of Ecumenism

This was the headline in a recent edition of Osservatore Romano – the official daily bulletin of the Holy See. [The Vatican]

The publication was reporting on East Anglia’s own newspaper report [Catholic East Anglia] of the Archbishop of Canterbury set to visit St John’s Cathedral in Norwich – an unprecedented visit by any primate of the Church of England.
