St Peter and St Paul:

The Anglican Church of St Peter & St Paul, located in the centre of the village, is mainly 14th century although there is evidence of an earlier church which no doubt housed the impressive 13th century font. The Church has a Medieval Double Hammer Beamed Angel Roof unique in Europe constructed in 1503. Legend has it that the timbers used were salvaged from a ship wrecked off Mundesley on passage to Ireland. It has a fine peal of bells. The cemetery contains the gravestone of Commander Jefferson Miles, RN, inscribed with the legend "the vindicator of Nelson." Commander Miles strenuously refuted claims made in Parliament in 1799 that Nelson had mistreated Republican prisoners while at Naples. The church is a Grade 1 listed building.

Knapton is part of the Trunch Team, led by The Revd. Andrew Jones assisted by two retired members of Clergy, four Licensed Lay Minsters and two Authorised Worship Assistants. The group comprises Mundesley, Gimingham, Knapton, Paston, Swafield, Trunch and  Bradfield.
