Bible Quiz

Tony Buttolph has composed a light hearted Bible quiz for church folk and friends to have a go at. His instructions for the quiz are at the top of the page. It is hoped that it will raise a little money for our churches too. The cost is £1.50 with a prize for the winner of £10.00.

Completed quizzes, with your name and contact number, can be placed in the box provided at the back of each church where there is a pot for your contribution. All completed quizzes must be returned by the 25th November. The winner will be announced by email and in church on Sunday 29th November.

You can download the quiz by clicking here.

Due to the Rector, Rev’d Kevin Billson, being off work for a period of recovery following an operation, live streaming of services is suspended until further notice.

However, copies of the service and sermon/reflection will be provided by Rev’d Judith Wilson and Sue Shillam and will be available online.

Daily Hope

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.
