Who  we  are

Eternity Church is a vibrant church of all ages and nationalities.

We have 2 campuses, one in the fine city of Norwich and the other in the market town of Downham Market.

We are part of the Assemblies of God in Great Britain. 

We believe that church should be fun and relevant - an expression of faith and hope and a celebration of God's astounding love.

If you are looking for a church that will encourage, challenge and inspire you in your life and your walk with God - then look no further!

We love God, we love life and we look forward to meeting you!

We are a social church and offer something for everyone:  Parent-Toddler groups, kids clubs, teen groups, students, small home gatherings and much more.  Click here to see what we offer or take a look at the upcoming events page.


None of this would happen without our fantastic team of dedicated staff and volunteers, lead by our Lead Pastor Paddy Venner.
