Parish History[edit | edit source]
Norwich St Edmund, Fishergate is an Ancient parish in the city and Diocese of Norwich.
Built in the sixteenth century it underwent Victorian refurbishment before the end of the parish. From 1887 it's parishioners were united with neighboring parish of St Clement as seen in the combined register 1887-1900.
In 1913 the building was surrounded on three sides by a large factory fire but unharmed and for decades stood amidst wasteland. It suffered damaged in Second World War Bombing Raids on Norwich.
As a result of the 1960's recommendations about redundant churches in the city it now serves as a counseling centre within the care of the Norwich Historic Churches Trust. It was previously used as a let church by the new Frontiers Church.
