Instead of our usual Crib Festival, this year we’re having a change and making it a Trees and Cribs Festival, with Christmas trees decorated by the various groups who use our premises, as well as a selection of crib scenes.
We shall be open on Thursday 5th, Friday 6th and Saturday 7th December from 10.30 am to 4.00 pm, and on Sunday 8th December from 12 noon, with the Christingle Service at 4.00 pm. There will be carol singing from 11.00 am to 12 noon on Friday, and an organ recital by Tim Patient from 11.00 am to 12 noon on Saturday.
This year’s chosen charity is The Sepsis Trust, in memory of a much-missed member of our church family, and there will also be refreshments, craft and second-hand book stalls each day, with funds going to the church.
Parking will be available on Saturday and Sunday in the school car park opposite the church.
Do come and visit us if you can – we’d love to see you!
We look forward to meeting the new Year 3 classes from Angel Road School when they come to visit us on 1st October to see our harvest displays and to do some related craft work.
Unfortunately, Rev Richard Kyaira’s move to England has been delayed, so he will not be with us by the beginning of the church year in September. We hope that he will be here by the beginning of October.
Our minister, Rev Robert Roberts, will be moving to Kings Lynn during this month, to take up his appointment as Circuit Superintendent for the North Norfolk circuit. His wife, Rev Debbie Caulk, will be taking up an appointment in the Fenland circuit.
We wish both Robert and Debbie (and all the dogs!) well in their new home and work.
We look forward to welcoming our new minister, Rev Richard Kyaira, and his family, who will be coming to England from Uganda during August. Richard will be responsible for our church and for the churches at Heartsease Lane and Framingham Earl. His first service here at Rosebery Road will be on Sunday 1st September.
We look forward to our annual Strawberry Tea on Saturday 13th July, which will once again be held in the lovely garden of one of our church family. Hope the weather’s fine!
On Sunday 7th July we shall be having a Section Service here at Rosebery Road, when members of Rev Robert’s other churches will be invited to join us for worship followed by lunch. This will be our opportunity to wish Rev Robert well as he prepares to leave us to take up a new appointment in North Norfolk.
