On-Line Services

Our on-line video now takes the form of a 'Sunday Reflection', incorporating one of the set readings, a reflection based on one of the sermons to be preached in-church that day, some brief prayers, and with a hymn to start and finish. This Sunday’s video will be the last for a few weeks as we start a new short study course – see below.

Afghan Refugees.

In common with many other local authorities, Norfolk County Council is helping with the resettlement of Afghan refugees and are appealing for assistance from the public. In particular, there is an urgent need for certain household items, as well as clothing and other help. Details of how to help can be found by visiting the Norfolk County Council website at www.norfolk.gov.uk and searching for “Afghan resettlement”. Please see the additional information in this month’s REACH, and in the handouts in church.

Coffee and scones will be served from 10am plus there will be a raffle and produce stall. We hope to see you there. Dates: October 2nd, November 6th, December 4th. New venue: Horning Village Hall.

New Study Group for Sunday Evenings - 'Love bade me welcome'

During the past eighteen months, we've had to question almost everything that we took for granted, including our normal patterns of worship. Why do we do what we do? That's the question which we might see as an invitation into a deeper appreciation of our traditions and patterns of worship. The Eucharist has been described as the 'source and summit' of Christian life, and, for many Christians, attending the Eucharist is a hugely familiar experience. But do we really know why we gather to break bread? Why do we sing or say the Gloria? And what does 'the Lord be with you' actually mean?

With the seventeenth-century poet and priest George Herbert as our guide, we will seek to journey deeper into the spiritual heart of the Lord's Supper. Five sessions, structured by Herbert's most famous poem, 'Love', will involve some talking, some discussion, some refreshment, and some worship, but always with space and ventilation!

All are very welcome, and please do spread the word.

Sundays at 6.30pm, at St Michael & All Angels, Barton Turf, starting 3rd October
