From the Notices: 28th April 2019

 We continue to mourn the death of Brian Sargent. In many ways he and Jean inspired the musical life of our Church and his organ voluntaries were brilliant. Our thoughts and prayers are with Gavin. His Committal will be at Earlham Crematorium at 2.00 pm this Thursday, 2 May, followed by a Celebration Service and refreshments at 3.00 pm in the Hall at Chapel Field Road, at which people will be speaking about their memories of him. You will be welcome to share your memories too.

 Easter Offering envelopes are in the pews today. Your gift will be appreciated; the bookmark in the envelope explains where the money goes.

 Church Family Event: A Spring Concert will be held this Thursday, 2 May at 7.30 pm, with special guests, the Wymondham Ukulele Group. Admission, £6.00, includes a finger buffet. Proceeds will go to Cameo’s chosen charity this year – Norwich Door-to-Door Mobility Transport.

 The 59 Club was founded in 1959 as part of a Youth Club at the Eton Mission in Hackney. In 1962 it established a motorcycle section, led by two Church of England clergymen, keen motorcyclists. To mark the Club’s 60th anniversary they are organising a ’Ride Out’ to St Paul’s Cathedral this Saturday, 4 May, for a service at 5.00 pm. Riders from Norwich will meet at the Ace Café on Ace Corner, North Circular Road at Stonebridge, NW10 7UD, before leaving there for St Paul’s at 3.00 pm. Chris Coughlan, who will be going, can give you more information.

 The members of Chapel Field Road have been asked to manage the Refreshment Stall at Heigham Park for May Day celebrations, on Monday 6 May. If you’re able to provide any cakes it would be a great help. They must be labelled with the ingredients. Please leave them in the upstairs kitchen on Sunday 5 May. All proceeds from this event will go to local charities. Thank you for your support.

 If you have a key to the Church car park please see Michael Kellard as soon as possible to renew your permit and pay your annual fee of £46.00.

 We’re invited to join with other churches in praying this week for St John the Theological Eastern Orthodox Church and for housing needs and the homeless in our city.

                   Now the green blade rises from the buried grain,
                  Wheat that in the dark earth many days has lain;
                  Love lives again, that with the dead has been:
                  Love is come again, like wheat that springs up green.

                  When our hearts are wintry, grieving or in pain,
                  Then your touch can call us back to life again,
                  Fields of our hearts that dead and bare have been:
                  Love is come again, like wheat that springs up green.
