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!

SUNDAY SERVICES 4TH MARCH UPDATE

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!

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!

John McGinley weekend update

John McGinley weekend update

We had a fantastic weekend with John at the beginning of November, and I know lots of you from around the churches will be wanting to go over some of his material from the weekend as we pray and plan ahead, asking God how he will lead us forward from here. The good news is that audio of John's teaching from Saturday and Sunday morning is now on the Resources section of this website in its own category, together with the Powerpoint slides from Saturday. I am sorry that the sound is a little patchy in places, but almost all of it is clear enough to make out well. We will see if we can get the Sunday evening recording on here soon too. Loads to feed on, and pray through - do listen again with a home group, or talk and pray it over with a friend. The PCCs are already thinking it all over too!

An exciting week!

An exciting week!

It is an exciting week for us here in the churches, and it got off to a great start yesterday, as we celebrated sending off 97 shoeboxes around the world with Operation Christmas Child, and then welcomed 42 children and their families to the Light Party in the Church Hall. Please do join me in thanking God for this wonderful day.

There is much more to look forward to, though! On Wednesday 1st at 7.30pm, we are meeting together to pray for our churches and communities, and for the world, at 60 Caistor Lane from 7.30pm. It would be great to see a whole selection of folks from across the group with us there.

Then this weekend, 4th-5th November, we are really pleased to have John McGinley with us. John is the vicar of Holy Trinity Church in Leicester, and a regional director for the New Wine movement, but most importantly a Norfolk boy. He will be sharing some ideas about being disciples of Jesus from his fantastic recent book Mission-Shaped Grace, which helps us to understand how following Jesus and sharing our faith with others fit together in clear and practical ways. We are having a day at St George’s Hall from 10am-4pm on Saturday – come along for as much as you can… we will be providing hot drinks and water, but we would love you to bring some lunch for yourself, and some cake/biscuits to share. Please do let me know you are coming by email to admin@venta-group.org. John will be staying with us for Sunday too, and will be speaking on a different theme at our morning services at 9am at Caistor and 10.30am at Stoke, and then again at a celebration service at Mulbarton church at 7pm.

See you somewhere this week!
