CAROL SERVICE

It was a full church on 18th December for our Carol Service when we joined with friends and family, members of Trinity URC and representatives of the groups who regularly use our premises. It was lovely to see some of our Church members who have been unable to attend our services during the past year.

Well known carols were sung with gusto and many thanks to Pru Goldsmith who was our organist that morning. The readers were George Gray (Property & Finance); Paul Rendell (Operations Manager- Street Presence); Jonathan Price (Hope into Action- Church & Tenant Empowerment Worker); Hazel Martin (Church Life Committee); Rosamund Walwyn (Church Member); James Kearns (Chief Executive BUILD) and Helen Read (Church Secretary).

There were thought provoking reflections from “Mary” and “Joseph” read by Judith Foster and John Potter. And an interesting reflection on the carol Silent Night – well, can the birth of a baby really be silent???
The morning ended with coffee, mince pies and a chance to chat to all our members and visitors.

Many thanks to Rev’d John Potter for joyful, thoughtful readings and carols.

Sunday 18th December at 10.30 am:
Traditional carols and readings followed by mince pies.

SOCIAL WEEKEND

SOCIAL WEEKEND

The weekend of 29th and 30th October saw two social events.

On Saturday evening Norwich Music Group’s programme selected pieces providing easy listening which were well received by the audience. their final item was Parry’s “I was glad”. Those words probably applied to all, as performers or audience, who had been in our church that evening.

Sunday, saw the sanctuary transformed from “worship style” to “dining style” following morning service. With tables set we sat down to a delicious lunch of cottage pie and vegetables followed by a great selection of desserts. The leisurely lunch provided an ideal opportunity to catch up with friends and the place was filled with chatter.

A big Thank You to the Church Life Team for providing a splendid lunch.
