Welcome to the website for the church of Our Lady and

St. Walstan, Costessey, in the diocese of East Anglia.


East Anglia is the home of the national shrine to Our Lady at Walsingham, who is rightly the principal patron of our diocese and joint patron of our beautiful church. Our other church patron is St Walstan, a local saint from the late 10th and early 11th century.

We are a small but committed and active parish: you will find details of some of the many groups and activities on offer in the pages of this website. Primarily, of course, we are a community of love and prayer. Should you visit our parish in person you are assured of a warm welcome.

I hope you will find the same welcome here at our website.

Parish Priest
