Cromer Mothers' Union meets on Tuesday 15th January at 2.30 p.m. in the Parish Hall Coffee Bar* when Malcolm Nicholas will share a New Year message. All are welcome. Details of the full programme for 2019 can be found here or you can contact us for further information. (*The Coffee Bar is in the Parish Hall, which is in Church Street opposite Boots (Postcode: NR27 9HH).

Take-a-Break, our group for under-fives and their parents and carers restarts for this term on Tuesday 8th January at 10.00 a.m. in the Parish Hall.  Everyone is welcome and we look forward to welcoming you back after our Christmas and New Year break. Contact us for details of our other groups for pre-school children and their parents and carers.

The next Church Prayer Night is on Monday 7th January at St Martin’s between 7.45 p.m. and 9.15 p.m. and everyone is welcome. Prayer Night offers the opportunity for the Cromer Church family to explore prayer together in a range of styles, and to pray for the world, for the church, for our community, for families, for individuals and for each other.  Please get the dates in your diary, and come along.

On Sunday 6th January, we have just one morning service - at 10.00 a.m. in the Parish Church - when all our morning congregations gather together for an all-age communion and commissioning service to mark the start of 2019.  Whatever your age, background or experience, you'll find a warm welcome and we look forward to seeing you there. This means that there is no 9.00 and no 10.45 at the Parish Church, and no 10.30 at St Martin's on that day. Sunday@Seven (7.00 p.m. in the Parish Church) takes place as normal.

The New Year’s Day firework display will take place from the pier, weather permitting, at 5.00 p.m. on Tuesday 1st January. The Parish Church will be open to provide a warm, quiet place to get out of the cold, and to allow volunteers to serve refreshments throughout the afternoon.

The event is orgainsed by a committee with members from Cromer Town Council, North Norfolk District Council, Cromer Carnival and Titanium Fireworks. Many other local organisations are actively involved, including Cromer Church, the Cromer Church bell-ringers, Cromer Police, Cromer Fire Brigade, Cromer RNLI, Cromer coastguard, North Norfolk Beach Runners, St John Ambulance, Cromer Museum and, on the day, a fantastic team of bucket collectors.

Every penny collected helps to pay for the display and for donations to local charities. For further details or to volunteer, please visit the New Year's Day Fireworks page on Facebook.
