Weekly Message from the Rector

Dear church family,

As we look forward with hope towards further unlocking next week, COVID data permitting, we turn our thoughts to the summer.  We have been enjoying some lovely weather and for many of us our first trips further than our immediate surroundings; perhaps for more than a year a least!  I do hope you are able to see family and friends again and that we can enjoy a peaceful and communal summer together.  Over the coming weeks many of our own ministry team & churchwardens are taking a break after serving on-line and on-site tirelessly for the last 16 months and I wish them a well deserved rest and we continue to be grateful for all they do for us as a church community.  Please do pray for them this week.

This Sunday we return to Mundesley church for our 10am service of Morning Prayer, which Harry is leading for us, which will be from our new Morning Prayer booklets.  If you would like to join us please contact Bob on 01263 721694 or bobwhite@live.co.uk.  Sadly due to lack of team we will not be able to offer the usual connection with Zoom or be able to record this service; we hope this doesn’t cause too much inconvenience.  If you’d still like to connect on Sunday why not join the Church of England service by following this link https://www.churchofengland.org/prayer-and-worship/church-online/weekly-online-services and we will be back the following Sunday as usual.

For the weeks ahead as we return to our church buildings [we will still be operating with allocated seats, social distancing, mask wearing and no singing] if you would like to request a place at one of our traditional benefice Holy Communion services please contact one of our Churchwardens:
