Unfortunately there is no parking available onsite, but street parking is available near the church.  Crown Road is a Residential Parking area, which means you need to display a relevant permit.  However, Norfolk County Council has issued a dispensation for Blue Badge holders and they may park as if they had the relevant permit by displaying the Blue Badge

 

What should I expect when I visit Park?

You will recieve a very warm welcome, particularly from our Welcome Team who will be able to answer your questions and direct you to where you need to go. There will be a few songs, with the words displayed on our screen. There are opportunities to pray and to read/listen to a passage from the Bible. We collect a weekly offering, which is especially for those who regularly attend the church. The money goes towards sustaining the church and to the missional organisations we support. There is an opportunity to share answers to prayer - something we call 'Family News' - before a 20 minute sermon, usually from one of the ministers at Park. Following that there is usually an opportunity to respond in some way, often through singing or prayer.

 

Tea, coffee and biscuits are served after the service where there is plenty of time to meet new people and ask more questions
 

What about my children?

We have a dedicated team who run a weekly junior church programme for the children aged 3–12. Children stay with their parent/guardian for the first part of the service. The speaker will announce when the children need to go tojunior church and one of the team will help guide them to their room. All our volunteers are DBS checked and familiar with the church's safeguarding procedures.
