Blofield Church presents a concert by the Broadland Youth Choir on Saturday May 18th at 7.30 pm. Tickets £8 at the door include refreshments.
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.
There will be an Organ and Piano afternoon tea concert on Sunday May 5th starting at 2.30 pm. This concert will be given by John Farmer and Ben Garrod. Enjoy a mixture of musical delights together with a traditional afternoon tea. Tickets £8 at the door include the afternoon tea.
A new magazine for our deanery has just been published which includes news from the churches across the Blofield Deanery. You can download it here.
On Thursday April 11th from 10 am until 2 pm we will be holding an Easter Fund Day at Blofield Church for children aged 5 to 11 years (Y1-6).

Join us on Sunday 7th April at 12.15 pm after the morning service for a Lenten Lunch. There will be homemade soup and bread plus some delicious puddings.

Every second month on the first Sunday of the month, starting in March, an alternative, contemporary style service known as ‘Worship Lite’ will take place at Blofield Church at 11 am. These services will adopt a more informal pattern to our usual services in that their presentation will be modern and contemporary Christian worship music will be used. There will be no Communion.
Come and join us for a different experience of worship. All are very welcome to attend. The dates for the services are: 3rd March, 5th May, 7th July, 1st September and 27th October.
Our Lent course for 2019 will be a series of guided conversations together about worship in our churches, using a professionally produced course material designed for churches such as ours. The course will ask us to consider together what it means to be a worshipper and how each of us can play our full part in the worship of our benefice and the churches we attend. We would value hearing from everybody who joins in the worship of our churches, no matter how often you attend. The course will take place on Wednesday evenings at Blofield Church on 13th March, 20th March, 27th March, 3rd April and 10th April. A course booklet will be available, priced £5.
The Toddler Group will be back from Wednesday 24th April after the Easter holidays from 1 pm until 3 pm. Parents, grandparents and carers are all welcome to come and join this successful, happy and friendly toddler group where the children learn and play in a welcoming, safe and well-resourced setting run by experienced, early years volunteers. Healthy snacks and refreshments are provided for adults and children. There is no fee for the session but a donation bowl is available if you wish to contribute. Please contact Yvonne on 715213 or Barbara on 714519.
