Other Events


On 29 April, as it is the fifth Sunday in April, we shall have a combined Benefice Service in St Mary's, Roughton.  As a way of encouraging us to look beyond the benefice we shall have a guest speaker, Dr Becky Ogundele, who has worked as a Christian doctor in Africa, most recently in famine relief work in South Sudan.   


On 9th June there will be a coffee morning at Sustead Hall in the morning. 


Also in June the benefice will be represented at the Norwich Diocese Leading your Church into Growth conference.  This should be a very exciting and challenging time.  If you want to know more, please contact either the Diocese or Revd Janet.


Looking into July, the Felbrigg Flower Festival will be held from Saturday 14th to Monday 16th.


Looking further ahead, the Rectory Garden Party will be held in the afternoon of Saturday 4th August.
