Holy Week resources. Coming soon we will have baskets in the St Ed's church porch with Palm Crosses, a Lifewords booklet with readings called ‘The Easter Journey’, and our prayer themes sheet. Please come along and help yourself to these resources for the approach to Holy Week.
At present we can confirm we will have livestreams for Holy Week including Palm Sunday, Wednesday in Holy Week, Maundy Thursday evening and Good Friday. Details of all these will follow.
Easter services We will plan for services as soon as we can, but this is not likely to be confirmed until the week before Easter, as we await for advice on what we are able to organise. It also depends on the weather for outdoor services!
St Peter’s Appeal A huge thank you to everyone who has contributed to the appeal. Please pray for the ministry of St Peter’s at this exciting time. The appeal will continue until the end of March, as we explore the installation of a composting lavatory and running water. Any donations may be made by cash or by cheque payable to St Peter’s PCC Ringland and passed to Rev Paul. Thank you so much for your support.

We also have thoughts and ideas for prayers and intercessions each day on our Prayer hub (see separate webpage).
Plant stall We are hoping to have a plant stall at church from 16th May onwards. Any donations of plants for the stall would be gratefully received. Vegetables are particularly popular, and we have a supply of seeds if anyone would like to start growing now.
Fun Day! We are planning to have a Fun Day at St Ed's on Saturday 17th July. Any offers of help to put up tents or to manage stalls and games would be gratefully received.
Food Bank whilst we continue to collect food for the Norwich Foodbank there is now a local Foodbank for the local needs of Taverham, Drayton and Thorpe Marriott. We have a separate receptacle in church for these items.
