A Message from our Rector: 

We have had some beautiful sunny days over the last week and it has been lovely to see more people in their gardens and in the newly opened beer gardens and outside cafes. Life is becoming much more sociable (even if it is still outside) and life is feeling a little bit more normal.

It is too good news that our churches are beginning to open for services although still under Covid restrictions. After much discussion with the wardens, ministry team and PCCs there are a few changes to the monthly service pattern which starts in May for a trial period of three months. Over the last year the zoom services have enabled people from different villages to be together which has been positive. To keep this connection going it felt right to start a monthly Benefice Evensong which will be on the third Sunday of each month at Dickleburgh. You are most welcome to attend and if you would like to be part of the choir then please do contact Fran Coomber who will let you know when the practices are.

This last year has been one which has brought many different experiences to personal, corporate, and church life. Our faith may have been challenged, all worship and social events stopped, and we have been very reliant upon communicating through other means. However, in the UK with the massive vaccination programme things are improving and hopefully the summer will be one where we can socialise and be with one another in a more relaxed way. As we begin to start enjoying life once again let us still be mindful of all those who are still suffering due to this global pandemic. It has in many ways been a hard and tough year but there still has been many positive things to learn from it particularly in the creative ways in which people have cared and supported one another. Let us hope and pray that this will continue as people’s lives begin to return to normality.

Please do give me a ring if you would like a chat or if you would like to meet in my back garden then you would be most welcome as well.

God bless. Sarah
