Details For Informal Worship Sunday 6th June
We will be outside St Eds this week so that a maximum of 30 people can come along.
You will need to bring a Chair, a Picnic, a Drink and suitable dress for the weather, even if it rains!
If you would like to come and join us please can you book in by sending us a direct message via facebook so we can make sure we do not exceed 30 people.
You can of course stay in the comfort of your own home and watch online as well!

Churches Count on Nature is running a ‘Love Your Burial Ground week’ from Saturday 5th June – Sunday 13th June 2021. We are invited to use the week to organise events involving making a record of wildlife in our churchyards. If you are interested in helping to organise events (maybe a wildlife trail for children/sponsored count for adults?) and to register for St Ed’s and/or St Peter’s Churchyards please let Rev Paul know. It would be great to have a ‘Wildlife Ambassador’ for each Churchyard!
St Ed’s Plant Sale – Our plant sale at St. Edmund’s started on Saturday 29th May and will continue whilst we have plants to sell. If you have plants to spare, please bring them along for sale and then buy some from our selection too! Proceeds for church funds.
Congratulations! To Jane Dryden who has just been accepted as a Butterfly Volunteer at the Norfolk & Norwich Hospital, working with end of life patients and the bereaved. Jane was selected after training, and is one of four Butterfly Volunteers.
Our Local Foodbank are needing to re-site their storage shed immediately, and our PCC has approved the area of the churchyard next to the existing shed. The Foodbank has also been offered an upright freezer, but it will not fit in the shed. Does anyone have any space or ideas where the freezer could be kept (access will be needed), please? Any ideas please let Rev Paul know.
Val’s Ordination is on Sunday 27th June at 9.30am at the Cathedral. Please pray for Val, Richard, Jenny and Helen as Val makes this exciting step.
We are hoping to livestream the service into St Ed’s on that morning – so our services in church will consist of the Ordination service, which apparently will take place at 9.30am for Val’s group, and then again at 11.00am. More details when we have them!
Julian Bryant’s Bike Ride Challenge
In ten days time I am taking up the challenge to cycle 200 miles in a day around the borders of Norfolk. Please sponsor the ride for Christian Aid if you can so that malnourished children will receive food parcels, communities can build soap and hand washing stations, wear PPE when helping others and much more in communities including those in India, Syria and Ethiopia impacted by COVID.
