Norwich St Helens Bishopsgate


Norwich St Helen is an Ancient parish in the city and Diocese of Norwich.

It is in the care of the the Norwich Historic Churches trust and continues to provide the church to the  centuries old Great Hospital.

St Helen Church is part of the The Great Hospital complex founded by Bishop Walter de Suffield in 1249, ‘in remission of my sins,’ to care for ‘decrepit’ priests. With over 750 years of continuous activity, The Great Hospital is now a charity with a remit to provide housing and care for older Norwich residents with limited means.
