Relationships with other Christian denominations
Each year we join together with members of Holt Methodist Church for united acts of worship and witness, particularly during the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, Christian Aid Week, the Good Friday Procession, the Remembrance Service and Christmas Carol Service. The leaders of the churches meet to pray together and to plan ecumenical events.
A Roman Catholic Mass is held in Holt Parish Church on Thursday mornings at 9.30 for members of St Joseph’s RC Church, Sheringham.
