St. Mary the Virgin

Welcome to Saxlingham Nethergate Church

Our beautiful village church is warm and welcoming as are the congregation. Our worship is more traditional with a robed choir for our Holy Communion Services held on the first and third Sunday. There is also 8.00am said BCP [1662] Holy Communion on the fourth Sunday

We have Morning Prayer [1662] on the second Sunday and an All Age Service on the fourth Sunday. After each service we meet for tea and coffee in our Parish room, except for the All Age service on the fourth Sunday, when we begin with refreshments in the main church building at 11am. Sunday services are well attended. At our services we are uplifted as we meet to worship God, hear his word in the scriptures and sermon.

There are special services too: We have an open-air service and a pet service on the green and a service in the ruined church at Saxlingham Thorpe.

 

We are a busy happy congregation and enjoy working together to share God's love in practical ways in our village. Why not come and join us for some or all of the following worship services and activities.

Emerging Church

Emerging Church

 

It’s good to see the tentative emergence from lockdown happening all around us.  But the relaxing of regulations brings its own challenges…. we watch with incredulity and anger the news reports of crowded beaches and what seems to be the blatant abuse, by some, of this new measure of freedom.

 

The churches here in Tas Valley have been opened for private prayer and we began offering ‘live’ services in two parishes as well as continuing with Zoom services during July and August.  From September we’ll be building on this, with three more of our churches opening their doors to worshippers on Sunday mornings.  Each step forwards involves familiarising ourselves with revised rules and adapting to new ways of worship.  At the time of writing, congregational singing is still prohibited and Holy Communion is to be given in ‘one kind only’ – sharing of the cup is not allowed.

 

That said, there’s a lot to be gained from meeting together, having face to face contact (or more accurately, ‘eye contact’ - over our face masks) sharing in fellowship and worshipping together. 

 

Recently I attended a drive-in ‘Songs of Praise’ style service at the Norfolk Showground and took part in a mini-retreat at home via Zoom – two events organised by the Diocese.  Although I joined in both with a certain amount of hesitation, they each proved to be valuable times of encounter with God. 

 

I know many of us have been blessed in unexpected ways as we’ve found ourselves doing church differently over the past few months and reassured to experience for ourselves the truth that our circumstances may change but God remains unchanging, love eternal, ever faithful, always true.

 

With my prayers and every blessing
