We have carried out a comprehensive risk assessment in respect of reopening the church for worship, and hope to recommence services within the next few weeks.
We also need to carry out risk assessments for the areas which we hire to other groups, to take account of the additional Covid-19 control measures required. In order to make sure that we have time to put all practicable measures in place, we shall not be taking any bookings for the foreseeable future, but we look forward to welcoming back hirers once we are satisfied that it is safe to do so.
‘Roots’ has discontinued producing weekly materials for use at home on Sundays while we are not able to meet for services, and has replaced them with subscription-based Bible studies. However, the Vine services are still available and this week’s link is below. Updates will be posted on Friday evenings or Saturdays.
Vine at Home 9 August 2020
Sadly we have had to discontinue holding services and other gatherings for the foreseeable future, owing to the precautions that are required in respect of the Coronavirus. We hope that everyone manages to keep safe and healthy during this worrying period, and will update this site when we are able to resume meetings.
Our next event will be on Saturday 8th February from 3.30pm to 6.00pm, when we shall be having our Church Party with bring-and-share tea.
We look forward to welcoming the Year 3 classes from Angel Road School when they visit on Tuesday 10th December to look at the Trees and Cribs displays, and also when they come on Monday 16th December to have their Carol Service.
We’ve spent all week decorating the church ready for the Festival, which will be open from Thursday 5th to Sunday 8th December – see details in previous post.
We look forward to welcoming as many visitors as possible!
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.
