Shoebox Packing Event

1 year ago

 
Shoebox Packing Event

It is time once again to launch the annual Shoe Box Appeal for children in need in Central and Eastern Europe.

Operation Christmas Child is the world’s largest children’s Christmas project, run by the relief and development organisation Samaritan’s purse. The project enables individuals, families, schools, churches, businesses and community organisations to fill ordinary shoe boxes with small toys, school supplies, hats and scarves and other gifts for needy children. With the help of churches and thousands of volunteers, these gift-filled shoe boxes are collected, processed and delivered to children in hospitals, orphanages, refugee camps, homeless shelters and impoverished areas around the globe, regardless of nationality,political background or religious beliefs.

The information leaflets and posters are in churches and the final date for handing in the boxes will be on Remembrance Sunday November 13th. Pick up a leaflet to help you fill your own box or come to a packing party like the one in Tasburgh.
Last year we sent 156 boxes from the Benefice and with your help we hope to match this or achieve an even better
amount this year.

There will be a community packing event on November 5th in the church room, st marys, tasburgh. Please come with your children to join in box-wrapping and packing. Filling a shoebox is a simple and fun thing to do, but it is a great practical way of showing love with children who have very little in material terms. Just come along!

Any of the following items would be gratefully appreciated to be used in the making of Christmas boxes for Operation Christmas Child: They can be brought to the church room on the day or call jane on 470 692 in advance.

Wrapping Paper, Empty shoe boxes, Cuddly toys (new, unused, not hand made), Toothbrushes, Toothpaste, Bar of Wrapped Soap, Flannel, Hairbrush/comb, Pads of paper, Picture books, Pencils, Pens, Crayons, Pencil Sharpener, Erasers, Hats, Gloves, Scarfs,
Small ball, Toy cars/ trucks (but not military vehicles), Passenger plane,
Children’s jewellery (nothing sharp), Hair accessories, New Dolls, Skipping ropes, Christmas cards.

Thanks so much for your kindness

Churches Trust Bike Ride

 

Calling all walkers, cyclists and car drivers! You are invited to join in a fun day out in Norfolk stopping off at as many Churches and Chapels as you can whilst raising some much needed funds for a Church or Chapel of your choice.

On Saturday 10th September it is the annual Norfolk Churches Trust fundraising day. Over 600 Churches and Chapels will be open on the day from 9am to 5pm. You can be sponsored for each building you visit or a set amount for the day. Half the money raised goes to The Norfolk Churches Trust and the other half to a Church or Chapel of your choice.


In Tasburgh in the past this event has been one of our major fundraising events for the year but it recent years the number of cyclists and walkers has dwindled. Please come and take part if you can to help raise some funds to help preserve our beautiful Church building and other beautiful churches and chapels in our county. For more information and a sponsor form contact Vivienne Taylor on 01508 471790."

An Hour of Prayer

2 years ago

 
An Hour of Prayer

Part of our week of prayer.

As the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have written, "That is why we are…. inviting you …. to join us in a week of prayer for the evangelisation ofour nation. In the week leading up to Pentecost (May 8th - 15th, 2016) we long to see a great wave of prayer across our land, throughout the Church of England and many other Churches.

Our hope is
for all Christians to deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ
for all of us to have confidence to share the Gospel
for all to respond to the call of Jesus Christ to follow Him as disciples, to live out the Gospel and to seek God’s Kingdom from day to day

At the heart of our prayers will be the words that Jesus Christ himself taught us - ‘Thy kingdom come, thy will be done.’ It is impossible to overstate the life-transforming power of the Lord’s Prayer. It is a prayer that is reassuring enough to be on the lips of the dying and yet dangerous enough to be banned in cinemas. It is famous enough to be spoken each day by billions in hundreds of languages and yet intimate enough to draw us ever closer into friendship with Jesus Christ. It is simple enough to be memorised by small children and yet profound enough to sustain a whole lifetime of prayer. When we pray it with sincerity and with joy, there is no imagining the new ways in which God can use us to his glory."

The sessions provide a fun way to learn about Jesus and God. At each session there is bible study and various activities. These include drama, craft, singing, puppets and worship. Occasionally we have a social time or outing together. Some activities are in small groups; some are for everyone together. You decide what activities you would like to join in with. The SMG works in partnership with Prospects to make sure that the sessions are fun and accessible for all. Prospects are a national Christian Charity for adults with learning difficulties. We use signing, large visual displays and easy read bibles to make the sessions as accessible as possible for all. Ofcourse at the end of each session there is the opportunity to chat and join together for refreshments

Care for the Planet Weekend

Care for the Planet Weekend

Care of Creation; Care of Neighbour – Hethel Church’s ‘flagship’ event for 2015 takes place over the weekend 11-13 September.  Hethel is one of our neighbouring parishes where Adrian Miller (our former Team Vicar is now the incyumbent)   The programme of nine ‘TED Talks’ on the Saturday is taking shape, from John Moore on national energy regulations and the possibility of community ‘grids’ to Alex Bilham giving the onceover on a Nissan electric car, and from Ruth Valerio on community pig farms to me on travelling to Prague, Madrid, Rome and Corsica by rail. Oh, and Paul Woodmin on Electric Highways plus Master Composters on, er, how to compost. Ruth will kick us off on the Friday evening with a discussion on Why we should care for God’s Earth (Hethel Church, 7.30pm). Our own John Torbitt will be talking on Ground Source Heat Pumps at 10.30 om Saturday.

We have a great team (Irene Woodward, Janet Negal, Diane Robinson and Dr Anne Edwards BEM) working on a biodiversity ‘thread’, with exhibits and lots of activities for children and adults in the churchyard. And Hethel Church’s new kitchen unit will be invaluable for providing food and drinks all day both days – low carbon impact, of course.  You can download a copy of the programme from our resources HERE.

If you camped for the whole weekend, you wouldn’t be bored, so if it’s not yet in your diary, do that now! Finally, I’ve had just one kind offer to help deliver flyers in Mulbarton and Flordon; can anyone else help please? (570557 / peternic@allbelievers.org). Peter Nicholls

Marriage Preparation

3 years ago

 
Marriage Preparation

This is a five session course for couples getting married in 2015.  Marriage Preparation is not about us saying we are 'experts' (we are not!) but about you investing time in building a stronger foundation for a lifetime commitment in marriage.  Sessions cover:

expressing feelings and learning to listen

the importance of commitment

resolving conflict

keeping love alive

talking about goals and values

The course is presented on dvds which allow for breaks when participating couples are given time to discuss various subjects on their own.  It also gives you the opportunity to find out about the marriage service itself and ask questions about planning your church ceremony.  The feedback we've had in the past indicates that couples find these evenings both helpful and enjoyable.

There is no charge for the course, which includes light refreshments.

For further details please contact Dawn on 01508 498924 or dawn@tasvalley.org

Christianity Explored

Christianity Explored

We start on Saturday 5th April at 4pm and invite you to join us – so come along if you would like to; the more the merrier! The Christianity Explored course gives you time and space to think through who Jesus is and why it matters. Each week we watch an excellent DVD & listen to a short talk. There’s always time for any questions too. The course is based around Mark’s Gospel. Mark’s Gospel splits roughly into two halves, and answers three important questions: Chapters 1-8: “Who is Jesus?” Chapters 9-16: “Why did Jesus come? And how should we respond?” As we approach Easter once again, this is a great time to start a course like this.

Do come if you can - IT'S FREE!

Christianity Explored

4 years ago

 
Christianity Explored

The Christianity Explored course gives you time and space to think through who Jesus is and why it matters. A huge variety of people, with different experiences and backgrounds, and different views and beliefs, come on the CE course.

“It opened my eyes to who Jesus was, and why he came” – Mike 

“They didn’t ram it down your throat, or judge you” – Bryony 

“They just plainly explained what the Bible said” – Ivan

"It was great to be able to build an understanding of what I believed” – Jo

Each week on the course, you watch a DVD or listen to a short talk. The course is based around Mark’s Gospel. It’s 16 chapters long and most people take around an hour to read it; though of course (as with all books) you can read it in chunks. Mark wrote his Gospel probably around the mid-sixties AD—about 30 years after the events he’s describing. It’s clear from the details he includes that his writing is based on eyewitness accounts. According to the earliest sources, Mark was writing down the eyewitness account of Peter, Jesus’ closest friend.

Mark’s Gospel splits roughly into two halves, and answers three important questions:

Chapters 1-8: “Who is Jesus?” Chapters 9-16: “Why did Jesus come? How should we respond?”

If you'd be interested in joining us, give me a call. There's no charge!

Coffee Morning

4 years ago

 
Coffee Morning
My name is Laura Jackson and I am a Young Leader with the Guides at 43rd Saxlingham Nethergate Scout and Guide Group. For the past 11 years I have been involved in Girlguiding, from a Rainbow to now a Young Leader at the age of 16. I applied to take part in an International Opportunity which involved attending a selection weekend in November 2012 and a second interview in November 2013, both at Pax Lodge (one of the four World Centres) in London. Following this process, I am fortunate to be one of the Girl Guides that has been chosen to represent the UK and Norfolk for the 23rd World Scout Jamboree which is to be held in Japan in 2015. The trip involves a few days acclimatising and sightseeing in and around the capital city of Tokyo, the 10-day jamboree itself which includes a visit to Hiroshima and a community project and finally I will spend several days at a home stay to get a real feel of everyday Japanese life.

As Girlguiding UK is a registered charity, it is a requirement for me to raise the cost of the trip of £3400 myself. To fundraise I am planning a coffee morning on Saturday 8th February 2014 from 10:30 - 12:00 at the Trinity Hall in Shotesham, a non-school uniform day for the Summer Term, a jumble sale, a car wash during Spring 2014 and a raffle to fundraise and I am also seeking sponsorship funds to reach my goal. I would be extremely grateful for any donation you or your organisation may be willing to give and on my return I would be more than happy to give a presentation about my cultural experiences and Girlguiding.

Film Night

4 years ago

 
Film Night

Presented by Louie Giglio

The heavens are telling glory of God, and their expanse the work of His hands. Night after night they remind us of just how small we are, and how huge God is. Looking out into the far reaches of the universe, we find a seemingly vast expanse of mystery and wonder, intricately fashioned by a God of unfathomable size and power. Just a glimpse of one of the billions of visible galaxies He has formed resizes us, shrinking us, and the world we call home, to seeming insignificance in an instant. But as tiny as we may seem, the God who knows every star by name also knows yours, and mine. And in the most stunning rescue imaginable, God sent His son to this spinning planet we call home – the Creator reconnecting us to Himself with life that never ends. Embark on an image-rich journey through the cosmos and peer into God’s universe to discover the amazing magnitude of His greatness & grace.

You do not want to miss this amazing film. Running time is 43 minutes. Tea, Coffee and any questions after. Admission is FREE.

The Bishop of Thetford’s Work Party

Could you come and join Bishop Alan in a day working with the Companions to help tidy up the grounds as well as doing some indoor work? No special expertise required, but a willingness to lend a helping hand as the community gets established at Ditchingham.

You’ll need to bring a packed lunch, but drinks and cake will be provided.

You’ll need to accept that you’ll probably get dirty working, and wear some appropriate clothes and footwear (with closed toes – no sandals).

If you have some gardening tools to bring along that could be helpful.

A petrol strimmer or two would help with the outdoors work.

 

 It would be great to have some idea of who’s coming, so email or phone Graham Cossey beforehand if you can, using the contact details provided.

But do just turn up on the day if it’s a last minute decision!

 “Emmaus Communities offer homeless people a home, work and the chance to rebuild their lives in a supportive environment.”

Each player takes it in turns to throw the dice, with the number thrown corresponding to a beetle body part to be drawn - each body part is worth a point. Points mean prizes during the evening.

It's a great way to meet and get to know new people and to enjoy some fun together. See you there!

What We're Doing

Both of our historic church buildings will be open all day every day through the week for people to wander in and admire.

Parking is available outside each church.  There are no toilets on site.
