Christmas Celebrations

Over the Christmas season there have been a wide variety of events ranging from various family focused times, such as the Christingle evening and the family Carol service which were full of activity to the quiet contemplative midnight service.  Something for everybody.

Shoeboxes Appeal

In November members and friends of the church took part in the Christmas Child Shoe box appeal where boxes are filled with toiletries, toys, sweets and hats or scarfs and then sent to children in third world countries.  In total 114 boxes were completed.

Celebrating Change

Following the well earned retirement of Rev Nigel Fox we now have new minister.  The Rev Catherine Hutton took over charge for the church in September.  She was no stranger to us since she has been the Circuit Superintendant Minister for a couple of years already.  The church is now following a new teaching scheme, ‘Words for Life’ introduced by Catherine.  We are delighted to welcome Catherine and her family into our church family.

Boy’s Brigade

The 4th Norwich Boys’ Brigade based at Sprowston Methodist Church on Wroxham Road is looking for new members aged 5 -8, to join our anchor section starting in September.

We are a uniformed Christian organisation, and meet on Wednesday evenings during school term time from 6.15 – 7.30.

Our programme is based on the 5 areas of Body (games, physical activity), Mind (activities and puzzles to challenge the mind), Community (learning about helping at home, community life etc), Creativity (arts and crafts) and Spirit (learning about the BB, the church etc), working towards badges.

However our emphasis is on having fun, whilst learning, and over time helping the boys to develop, grow in confidence, and learn about themselves and others.

If you have a boy aged 5 – 8 who is interested in joining please contact Stephen on sbutterfield@talktalk.net or 01603 405544.
