Chedgrave: All Saints

Welcome to All Saints, Chedgrave. We are continuing to meet together on Sundays to worship together. In addition we are continuing to provide online worship for our growing 'virtual congregation'. Details of both our online and in-person services can be found below. We have set up a Chet Valley Churches YouTube channel and will be posting a new Sunday service every week, premiering each Sunday morning. Do join us there, or at one of our church services.

There will be an online Covenant Service with Holy Communion live on Sunday 29th January 2023. For more details, please see our "Online Congregation: Chet Valley Covenant Service with Holy Communion" page.

There will be a combined Covenant Service with Holy Communion at 10:45 in St John, Loddon on Sunday 29th January 2023.

The church will be open for private prayer during daylight hours.

Stay in touch with us by following our Facebook page and keeping up to date with all we are doing.

Xpressions Cafe: 'It's Church, Jim, But Not as We Know It'

Every First Sunday at for 2 hours

Chedgrave: All Saints
Address
Off Hardley Road Chedgrave Norfolk, NR14 6NQ, GB

Xpressions Café opens at 10:00 and closes at about 12:00. Downstairs in the All Saints Church Centre we have Xpresso, where Fairtrade tea and coffee are served (as much as you like) and there are cakes and Sunday papers. We do not do anything "˜religious' in Xpresso.

Upstairs in the Church Centre we have Xpressions, running from 10:00 to about 11:10. This is mainly for children and families but everyone is welcome. There are craft activities, games, food-making, songs, stories, prayers and so on.

In the medieval church we have Xplore, which is in two parts. From 10:30 to 11:00 Xplore Further will take up the theme of the day and explore in, perhaps by discussion, perhaps by group activity (last Café the group wrote a letter from St Paul to "˜the saints in the Chet Valley), or maybe with prayer stations or other reflective activity. At 11:30 we invite everyone to join together in church for Xplore Together, a multimedia interactive session which develops the theme of the day (drawn from one of the day's lectionary readings).

In practice it's very flexible: people wander from session to session as they choose and the informality is part of our DNA.
