Caistor Street Party, 20th May 2018

It was an “all age” street party ranging from two to three months old, to some of us where three score years and ten have now become a distant memory and all ages in-between.

Organised jointly by the Parish Council and Church Council and with much help from the residents of South Wood Drive where the party was held.


Soon after 10 o’clock on the Sunday morning  garden chairs and tables began to appear, bunting was being fixed to fences and walls, gazebos being erected  and the sun was shining in a clear blue sky, a perfect day for a street party.


With the BBQ’s in place and Simon and George ready for action, people started to arrive at

 about 1 o’clock with sausages and burgers for cooking.  A huge range of cakes had been laid out next to the teas and coffee and these were all looked after by an enthusiastic group of young people, Eliza, Ruby, Ori, Uma, Grace (Woods), Grace (Baker), and Samuel, and with Jonathan looking after the cold drinks.

Various games were being played and Peter provided music to add atmosphere to the proceedings and at one point there was 80+ people all enjoying food and conversation with neighbours and friends.

Thank you to William who was busy with his camera and many photographs were taken some of which are here, more will be on display in the church.

A very big thank you to all who helped in any way and also a big thank you to those of you who supported the party and we hope everyone had a lovely afternoon in the sun.

Lyn's Sermon from Sunday 4th March

If you were with us in the Church Hall on Sunday 4th you'll remember that our curate Lyn preached a brillliant sermon from 1 Corinthians 2, speaking of the way that Jesus and the crucifixion are good news for us, encouraging us to share, and telling us some of her experience of hearing Billy Graham speak at Carrow Road in the light of his recent death. It is so worth reading again, or catching up with if the snow kept you away: just click on Resources at the top of this page and scroll down...

Annual Report for 2017

With our 2018 APCMs in full swing, we have uploaded our annual report to the website (click here) so you can read lots of great news about everything that has been happening in our churches this year. There are copies available in the churches, but we thought it might help you to be able to see it online. Happy reading!

In view of the continuing snowy and icy conditions, and the relative inaccessibility of Caistor and Stoke churches, we have decided that we will hold one service only tomorrow, Sunday 4th March, at 10.30 am in the Church Hall. Both the 9am and Taize services at Caistor, and the evening Gathering at Mulbarton, will not be happening tomorrow. We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at the Church Hall as we gather to worship together. Please do not attempt to travel if it is not safe to do so. Please continue to pray and care for one another and those around you.

Weather Update including Lent breakfast CANCELLED

In view of the difficult road conditions and the threat of more snow tonight, we have made some changes to our plans for this weekend:

The Lent breakfast on Saturday morning WILL NOT be taking place. Please do not attempt to come to the Church Hall.

As it stands, we are planning to go ahead with our Sunday morning services as normal at Caistor at 9, and Stoke at 10.30. In the event that we decide tomorrow that conditions at the churches are too difficult, we will rearrange both those services, meeting together to worship in the Church Hall at 10.30am, where access is level, and the building, drinks and welcome will be warm! We will email out, and post messages on Facebook and the website. I will leave a recorded message on my phone as well.

We are hoping that the conditions might have improved sufficiently by Sunday evening to enable the 5pm Taize service at Caistor and the 7pm evening Gathering at Mulbarton to go ahead, so those ones are still happening at the moment.

Please do pray and look out for one another, keep safe, and keep looking at emails, Facebook and the website to get an update tomorrow. And PLEASE pass this message on!

Our first Allstars Club!

We had a great time yesterday at our first ever allstars CLub! About 20 children from Stoke primary school came along and had a great time thinking about the Parable of the Lost Sheep, with songs and games and crafts and the compulsory drinks and snacks... We are very grateful to our super team of helpers who made everything possible, and are so excited to see how this grows and develops in the months to come! Please do keep praying for us!
