Church of England Diocese of St.Edmundsbury & Ipswich Claydon and Barham

Bishop Mike visiting twice in a week!

18 Apr 2021, midnight

Bishop Mike is coming to Barham Church for our 10am Eucharist on 25th April to preach and to bless our new Bell installation. The bell installation was completed earlier this year and consists of our four original bells which have been away to ne refurbished plus two brand new bells. They have been ung in a new frame installed in the tower below the original frame. Sadly the Covid 19  restrictions have meant that as yet it has not been possible to gather a team of bell ringers together to ring them although one has been tolled for a funeral and before the national silence in honour of the Duke of Edinburgh.

Bishop Mike will then return later in the week to help with the Church weekly clean! This is a result of the "Buy a Bishop" initiative to raise money for our twin Diocese of Kagera in Tanzania. Bishop Mike sportingly accepted an offer to pay him to replace one of our regular cleaners for a week. He will supply his own Marigolds!!
