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.
Do you like animals? Do you think bats are exciting? Then come to our Batty Sleepover at Blofield Church starting at 7 pm on Wednesday 31st May and finishing at 8 am on Thursday 1st June. This will be a fun-filled activity for children aged 8+, accompanied by a carer aged 18+. £2 per child.
Make your own bat and fly him from the belfry; take a trip to the tower; hear a ‘Bat Talk’ about these fascinating creatures; enjoy a sausage barbeque and soup supper; take an evening walk to Braydeston Church in search of bats; ‘camp’ in the church; take the marshmallow structures challenge; enjoy a ‘Batty’ breakfast … and much more! Bring your sleeping bag, a torch and your pyjamas – glow sticks and glow balloons supplied! For more information contact Yvonne on 01603 715213, or Judith on 01603 713197.
Advance booking is required. Booking form and more details can be downloaded *here*. Please return forms to church by Tuesday 23rd May.

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.
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. For more information please contact Yvonne on 715213 or Barbara on 714519.
