Love the Street evangelism training in Norwich
As we think about Britain’s place in today’s world, there are many stories to be told in our churches and churchyards about how our ancestors travelled the world, how people came to the UK, and about current overseas links.
Over the centuries, Norfolk and Waveney have had strong connections with the wider world, through trade, conflict, migration and tourism.
There are ongoing official links and friendships that bring parishes together with people leading very different lives in far-away places. Just one example is Woodbastwick church which serves a village of only 100 people, but has past and present links to at least three other Continents! Another is the Diocesan link with Papua New Guinea and the Diocese of Lulea in Sweden.
Each parish has unique stories to share with visitors and locals alike and this year’s Open Churches Week aims to celebrate these connections to the wider world.
If you haven't started planning for this year's Open Churches Week here are just some ideas to help start the process:
Once you have your ideas remember to add your events and activities to the Diocesan website. Any event added to website is considered for inclusion within The Magazine, eNews and on social media! Remember to also share your events with the local media.
