Advent Celebration in Blofield

Posada is a Spanish word that means ‘inn’, and is also the title for a Mexican Advent Celebration where Mary and Joseph travel from house to house to proclaim the imminent arrival of Jesus.

This year Mary and Joseph will be travelling around the village again visiting shops, schools and nurseries as they make their journey from the Advent Service at Blofield Church on the 3rd December, returning for the Christingle service at 4 pm on the 24th December. Please look out for them displayed in windows or on the Friends of Blofield Church Facebook page as we follow their travels looking for a place to stay.

“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.
