Just when you thought it was safe to get back in the water, along comes another lockdown!
Following this evenings announcement, we are awaiting further advice from the Church of England. Parliament has yet to vote, but it looks likely from the information on Gov.uk that we will not be able to meet for worship for the next four weeks. This is sad, but we have been here before and came through it together, safely. We will do so again. We will still be meeting this week in Wroxham Church at 10am for Holy Communion, and it is likely that our churches will continue to be open for private prayer.
I will be in touch again with more information as soon as I have it, but we will be able to share in a Zoom service if worship in church isn’t possible, so we will still meet. If you would like to join in with that and don’t have the information, please just ask. Liz 01603 784150 firstname.lastname@example.org
In the meantime, this week brings All Saints day.
From the national church this week we have a service for All Saints. The invitation on the website reads
Join us for our All Saints’ online service, and be comforted that “God is with us in our pain and fear”.
The Bishop of London, Rt Rev Dame Sarah Mullally, leads this special service of thanksgiving, hope, and remembrance from St Paul’s Cathedral.
The Church of England is also still running the Daily Hope phone line. You, or anyone you know who would find it helpful can dial in on 0800 804 8044 to hear prayers, hymns and reflections

I hope something there works for you. I will update the website as soon as I have more information, but in the meantime we are here to help in any way we can, so please do be in touch if you need anything.
With my love and prayers,
