Farewell to Bishop Jonathan

On Sunday 24th January at 3.30pm, as a Diocese we will bid farewell to Bishop Jonathan. He will preach at a service which will be live streamed from Norwich Cathedral. Gathering online we will give thanks for the many gifts Bishop Jonathan has shared with us during his time here as Bishop of Lynn and during his extensive and varied ministry in the Church. We will also send Bishop Jonathan and Rebecca away with our love and prayers and with God’s blessing for their next adventure together. Due to the current restrictions only those with a part in leading the service will be present in the Cathedral. However, wherever you are in the diocese, country, or even the world, I invite you to join us online as we will live-stream the service on the Cathedral’s YouTube channel. You can use this link to join: https://youtu.be/fENesGrXpHA or you can search ‘Norwich Cathedral Services’ on YouTube.

 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity – 18th -25th  


   The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity in 2021 has

    been prepared by the Monastic Community of

   Grandchamp in Switzerland. The theme that was

   chosen, “Abide in my love and you shall bear  

   much fruit”, is based on John 15:1-17 and

   expresses Grandchamp Community’s vocation to

    prayer, reconciliation and unity in the Church and

    the human family.

Prayer Guide

We believe in the power of prayer. Please give thanks

 and pray for the following as you pray during the week.


Pakefield Church

  • For visitors to our church, who come to simply look around or to pray, that they may know God’s touch.


  • For those who live on Teesdale, Thornham Close and Tower Road.  
  • For those in our community who feel isolated, alone and afraid.
  • For all those donating and organizing local Foodbanks and meals.


  • For those you know who are unwell or in hospital.
  • For Jill F, Janet Ellis, Tony, Di L, and David H.
  • For the family and friends of Douglas Day whose funeral was on Friday.
  • For the family and friends of Iris Restall whose funeral is on Friday this week.

Praise and Thanks

  • For answers to prayers in our lives and those we love.
  • For the 45 years of ministry given by Bishop Jonathan, and his past 9 years here with us in Norwich.


  • For the Anglican Church of Australia.
  • For the Sisters of the Ecumenical Grandchamp Community in their daily Prayer: Pray and work that God may reign. Throughout your day let the Word of God breathe life into work and rest. Maintain inner silence in all things so as to dwell in Christ. Be filled with the spirit of the Beatitudes: Joy, simplicity, mercy.
  • For anything you have seen or heard during the past week and pray for whatever comes to mind.

(If there is anyone or anything that you would like us to include in this prayer list please let Revd Sharon know)
