On the first Saturday in September we had a very successful coffee morning and gift day where people chose their favourite bible verses and we looked through the new Bibles purchased with a generous legacy. We now have both the Good News version and the NRSV version to refer to.
On the following Saturday a bring and share tea was held, preceded by a film show. On Sunday, the service was led by Rev. P. Granville from Cantley (a Roman Catholic Deacon heavily involved in Ecumenical work). It was great to get his perspective on Methodism and get an insight into his background and journey of faith. In the afternoon several people travelled to Norwich, to watch and take part in a musical celebration and talk given by Roger Jones to illustrate his musical achievements. Most of the regular activities also took place last week and, in addition, the Phoenix club welcomed Colin and Elizabeth Wooden to talk about a visit to Rumania.
On Sunday 29th September, the Harvest Festival service at 10.45am, will be led by Rev. C. Kennell when gifts for the Foodbank will be collected. As usual, there will be various activities at the back of the church for any children present to enjoy and afterwards everyone is invited to stay for refreshments and a chat in the lounge and then there will be a Ploughman’s Lunch for those who have booked.
On Monday the Community Cafe will be hosting a Macmillan Coffee Morning, opening as usual from 9am until 1pm, serving drinks, filled rolls, scones and cakes. The lounge will also be available with a play area for young children. The playgroup will open for the week and the Short Tennis group will meet at 7.15pm. On Tuesday there will be rehearsals for the Singing Futures Children’s Choir, followed by the Choral Society’s rehearsal. On Wednesday the Luncheon Club will be open for those who have booked a place, on Thursday the Property and Finance Group will hold their bi-annual meeting and Trinity Singers will rehearse on Friday at 4pm.
