A time of Remembrance…

   …this Wednesday will be the 80th anniversary of the  bombing of our church building in 1941. We were not the only church to be bombed during that 24 hours. So, we will spiritually join our brothers and sisters in  Plymouth (at St Andrews Parish Church that was hit on

  22nd April 1941 and killed over 70 people) by having a  time of silent Evening Prayer at 6.30pm.  

 Gathering to pray

   From this month our Hour of Prayer has moved to a Thursday evening and will be at the later time of 7.00pm to enable more people to attend. You will also see this very important meeting has also been renamed to become one our Church ‘Gatherings’ so please come along and gather together and pray for the work of our church in and around our Pakefield community.


 Graveyard Gardening Group

   This friendly group resumes on Friday from 10.00am, and with the size of our Churchyard social distancing should not be a problem! Tea and biscuits cannot be supplied at present, but feel free to bring along your own snack!   

   Stop Press: People with Strimmers are urgently needed as  weeds are now growing a pace, and B. it’s a big space for one or two folk to keep under control.

  Pop-up Spring Fair

    This will be on Saturday from 10.00am until 12.00.

    Please bring donations of cakes and plants from 9.00am
