All our churches are open daily.
Many thanks for your interest, we hope to see you soon.
In a world filled with chaos, we pray because prayer is the antidote to anxiety.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus”.
Philippians 4: 6-7.
For our parish community: that we may be moved by God’s love to reach out to others in our turn, especially to those who are poor, so that no one may feel abandoned, forgotten or alone.
For the Church throughout the world: that she may be a sign of God’s love for all people and a beacon of hope for all who are in need.
For world leaders, that the Holy Spirit may guide them to speak out for what is right and take action to build a better future.
For everyone who is sick or afraid, bereaved or isolated and we pray for all who support them. May God grant each of them peace and comfort, courage and perseverance.
For our Benefice and Parishioners, especially those who are suffering with their health; and the recently bereaved.
For our church buildings that funds may be found for their urgent repair.
For our services across the Benefice that they will engage and connect with people in a special way.
For the Wild Church initiative.
For the Open Book initiative.
CORONAVIRUS GUIDANCE WHEN VISITING OUR CHURCHES
Although not mandatory, you may wish to wear a face covering when attending Church.
At the moment Communion will be offered in both kinds. This will offered by intinction and is optional. There is no pressure to accept the wine and the priest will check with each communicant if wine is wanted. The priest will take a wafer and if wine is wanted, will dip it into the cup. This method, with only the priest doing the intinction, minimizes any possible cross infection. We stress that no one should feel obliged to accept the wine as it is perfectly acceptable to take the wafer without wine. This procedure will be under constant review.
For those who feel that they would still prefer to join us from home, we will, for the present, continue to live-stream the weekly service from Holy Trinity, West Runton .
SAFEGUARDING, HELP AND ADVICE
Safeguarding means protecting the health, wellbeing and human rights of children and adults at risk of, or experiencing, emotional, psychological, physical or spiritual harm and/or neglect.
Safeguarding means enabling those who are affected to live safely, free from any kind of abuse or neglect. It is about people and organisations working together to prevent and reduce both the risks and actual experience of abuse in all of its forms.
We take safeguarding very seriously, at all of the Benefice Churches and care about all those we seek to serve within our churches and our communities.
We conform to the policy of Norwich Diocese which can be found at https://www.dioceseofnorwich.org/about/safeguarding
