Adventures in Prayer

During July and August the Ministry Team ( Kevin, Paul, Judith and Sue) are planning a series of study groups called Adventures in Prayer which will help us find new and different ways to pray, taking us on a journey and explaining all we ever wanted to know about prayer but were afraid to ask. The series of five meetings will be held fortnightly on Tuesday evenings (7.30 pm until 9.15 pm) alternating between the Courthouse in Blofield and Heathlands in Blofield Heath. You are free to come to all or pick whichever most interests you. More information will follow soon but you can contact us about it via the form on the Contact Us page in the meanwhile.

Have you heard of the Paston family?

The Paston family wrote a prodigious number of letters in the 15th century which have been saved and teach us much of life in those times. Edward Paston, 1550 – 1630, had a Manor House in Blofield and was buried in Blofield Church. One of the most prominent Norfolk families is getting a huge boost from the Heritage Lottery Fund – and it will enable people across the county and beyond to join up the dots in its 300 year history.

The 600 Paston Footprints Project will, over a three year period, engage with 11 key centres in Norfolk (Paston, Bacton, North Walsham, Gresham, Mannington, Oxnead, Hellesdon, Blofield, Mautby/Caister, Norwich and Dereham) to work with and support local community groups, schools, walkers, churches, museums and the owners of key sites, to provide resources, information boards, events, activities, workshops, podcasts, booklets, and maps of heritage trails and cycle routes. Look out for Blofield’s part in this exciting venture.

“Play Church” Toddler Group

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.

Computer Café in the West End

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.

West End Café

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.
