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  Holy Communion on the fourth Sunday
We have Morning Prayer  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.

Keep Calm and Carry on...

Keep Calm and Carry On…
With the gradual easing of lockdown comes a host of further concerns…how to interpret the new rules, how to make things work in new and different ways, how to move into the future leaving behind what is no longer of benefit but taking with us lessons learned and the good we’ve gained.
This will be a ‘work in progress’ for some time to come. Meanwhile we keep on keeping on….
The church is making good use of technology and digital resources to help negotiate our way through the current challenge. As well as our own Zoom service, the Diocese of Norwich website www.dioceseofnorwich.org offers links to services of worship and a variety of useful resources to help maintain and nurture our spiritual life. Likewise www.churchofengland.org.
I’d like to highlight the ministry of Canon J.John who delivers spiritual truth with good humoured wisdom. At www.canonjjohn.com you’ll find ‘Word for the Day’ ‘Facing the Canon’ and ‘The J.John Podcast’. From the site menu you can access his blog – I particularly recommend exploring this for many articles reflecting on our current situation.
There are two excellent Christian radio stations offering music, teaching, interviews, articles and news, which I encourage you to check out: www.premierchristianradio.com and www.ucb.co.uk.
If you haven’t already discovered www.youtube.com as a source of encouraging preaching, I suggest going there to find a wealth of teaching from HTB Church (Holy Trinity Brompton), among others. There is an almost endless list of ministries on YouTube – particularly from ‘across the pond’. Discernment is needed when ‘surfing the net’ for good teaching – it’s usually apparent when something is whacky, or slightly off track. If in doubt, ask! Always take the Berean approach (Acts 17:11) and you won’t go far wrong!
With my prayers and every blessing
