We are sad to hear of the death of Dorothy Harbord, a friend from Cromwell House who enjoyed attending our morning services whenever her health allowed. We hold her family and friends in our thoughts and prayers.
Debbie’s Ordination: A reminder that next Sunday, 1 July, the coach will leave Chapel Field Road Church at 12 noon and will be parked in Wessex Street. It will call at Drayton at 12.20. It is likely that refreshments at the Barnbygate Church will be just tea and biscuits so you should bring enough food for the day. Bin bags will be provided for rubbish.
The Friends of Cromwell House will be holding their annual Garden Party on Saturday 21 July at 2.30 pm, with stalls and games to enjoy, and teas and ices to refresh you. Everybody is welcome to join in the fun.
Also on 21 July, beginning at 2.00 pm at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse Museum, is a District event celebrating The Life and Achievements of George Edwards. Born in 1850, he was a Primitive Methodist who rose from abject poverty and illiteracy to found the Agricultural Workers’ Union in 1906 and in its first year cycled over 6,000 miles to meetings. Later he became a magistrate and an MP, and was awarded the OBE. The theme of the afternoon is Women in Agriculture. See the poster in the Church Centre for details.
Christina Potter will be grateful if holders of World Church boxes will return them to her for their annual opening . . .
. . . as will Margaret Snelling for the return of Action for Children (League of Light) boxes for their annual opening.
Thanks from Cameo to all who helped with and supported their Coffee Morning in May, when £331.75 was raised for their chosen charity, Autism Anglia. A grand total of £1352.50 has been made from events during this year.
The 34th Norwich Girl Guides would like to thank everyone who supported the coffee morning and craft sale on 16 June. We raised around £120 for the Guides to participate in a large international Scout and Guide camp at the Norfolk showground in August. A further £40 raised selling fudge will support one of the adult leaders to travel to the Maldives in July for a Guiding development project.
A message from the Irving family: “We wish to say a huge thank you to everyone for your cards, presents, prayers and blankets! We’ve been overwhelmed by your kindness as we settle into family life. With every blessing, Sophia, Alex and Rachael.”
The June edition of Contact, our Church magazine, is out now. Do ask the Pew Stewards for your copy.
You’re invited to join with other churches in praying this week for our twinned city churches in Rouen, Novi Sad, Koblenz and El Viejo.
I owe my Lord a morning song.
How can I help but sing
when God is all in all, and I
