British Summer Time ends this weekend and clocks go back an hour. Please remember to put your clocks back an hour before you go to bed on Saturday night or you'll arrive very early for church on Sunday morning!
On Saturday 2nd November, the Diocese of Norwich is running One Big Day - Growing Everyday Faith, a one-day conference and training event exploring what it means to develop a culture of discipleship across generations, abilities, geographical boundaries and in the wider community. Keynote speakers include Laura Hancock, Director of Church Resources at Youth for Christ; and Revd Canon Dr Sandra Millar, Head of Life Events for the Church of England.
One Big Day takes place at Northgate High School in Dereham (NR19 2EU) between 9.00 a.m. and 5.00 p.m.
We're planning to take a minibus and would encourage everyone who is involved with or interested in finding out more about, children, youth and families work to attend. You can get more information or sign up through Cromer ChurchSuite here or contact Simon for more information. Direct booking at a cost of £7.50 is also possible through the Diocese's Eventbrite page here.
13th - 19th October 2019 is Prisons Week. For over forty years, Prisons Week (a registered charity) has prepared prayer literature for the Christian community to use as they pray for the needs of all those affected by prisons: prisoners and victims, their families, their communities, those working and volunteering in prisons and the criminal justice system.
Please pray each day during Prisons Week but also ask yourself whether there is one thing that you as an individual, or as a church, can do to help any of the people that you are praying for.
On Sunday 13th October, we have just one morning service* - at 10.45 a.m. in the Parish Church - when all our morning congregations gather together for Gift Sunday. 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 service at the Parish Church, and no 10.30 service at St Martin's. Sunday@Seven (7.00 p.m. in the Parish Church) takes place as normal.
The next Church Prayer Night is on Monday 7th October 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 date in your diary, and come along.
