Welcome

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.
