BICENTENARY SERVICE

BICENTENARY SERVICE

The Lord Mayor and Sheriff of Norwich along with the Co-Moderator of the URC General Assembly attended the Bicentenary Service on Sunday 1st December, exactly 200 years to the day since the church’s first service was held in 1819.

Over 100 people attended from across the six URC churches in the Norwich area.The service was led by two group ministers, Revd John Potter and Revd Bruno Boldrini. Revd Nigel Uden preached the sermon referencing the same Bible text from Exodus 20 that was used in the first service on Dec 1st 1819.

David Uden played the famous Father Willis organ and a combined choir enhanced the worship.

Revd Nigel Uden cut the celebration cake, which was enjoyed by everyone with tea and coffee after the service.

Revd John Potter said ‘The service was a truly inspirational celebration of the 200 years of this church and an opportunity for us to reflect on Advent Sunday about what may be ahead of us in the future’.
