Over the years St. Andrew and St. Peter’s church has provided solace and inspiration for many thousands of Blofield parishioners and visitors. Now we begin our project of developing a community area in the building which we hope will encourage all to love and enjoy our church as much as we do.
Please join us for an event entitled “Conserving Nature – Enhancing Wellbeing” on Saturday 9th September 10 am until 4 pm at Blofield Church.
Blofield churchyard has been managed for wildflower conservation for over 30 years by the church and by Blofield and District Conservation Group. Come and see more of its local work. Norfolk Wildlife Trust has carried out wild flower surveys throughout the year. See the results. A Healing Garden of medicinal herbs has been developed; a herbalist will explain their history and use. View the results of a moth trap set up the previous evening. Discover connections to the famous Paston family and John Dryden the first Poet Laureate.
Our Play Church group is every Wednesday from 1 pm until 3 pm during school term time. Parents, grandparents and carers are all welcome to come and join this successful and friendly toddler group while the children learn in a welcoming, safe and well-resourced setting. Activities provided are appropriate for all preschool aged children. There are refreshments for the adults and healthy snacks and drinks for the children. There is no charge but we do have a donation bowl if you wish to contribute.
On Wednesday 19th July at 12.30 pm we will be having a picnic lunch (hopefully in the churchyard) to celebrate the end of the Summer term. Please bring a picnic, we will provide drinks and outdoor activities. For more information please contact Yvonne on 715213 or Barbara on 714519.
A warm welcome awaits you at our new monthly Computer Café at Blofield church. Free wi-fi available, alongside delicious coffee, tea and homemade cake (on a donations basis). So, if you’ve got some research or writing to do come and work in the company of others. For those who are unsure about using their computer help will be on hand to give some pointers and encouragement. It is hoped that we will have access to family history research for which there will be a minimum donation of £1 to cover costs.
Computer Café will run on the last Wednesday of each month 10.30 am until 12.30 pm. We look forward to welcoming you at the West End Café in Blofield church.
Each Wednesday there is a warm welcome from 10.15 am at our West End Café with hot drinks, cakes, cookies and companionship. Do come along then or join us also for the 9.30 am mid-week communion service which precedes the café.
