Hidden Figures

True Story / Drama (PG) 127 mins

Putting man on the moon is one of humanity’s greatest achievements, but the women who played a part in getting him there have gone unsung for too long – and the fact that some of them were African-American is the surprise draw of this inspiring, Oscar-nominated account, which stars Taraji P. Henson, Janelle Monae and Kevin Costner.

HIDDEN FIGURES is the incredible untold story of Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe)—brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.

Cast: Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe, Kevin Costner, Kirsten Dunst, Jim Parsons, Mahershala Ali, Aldis Hodge, Glen Powell & Kimberly Quinn

Will Dogs Chase Cats in Heaven?

3 months ago

 
Will Dogs Chase Cats in Heaven?

Will dogs chase cats in heaven?
Many people ask questions about what will happen to their pets or farm animals when the animal dies. Will we see them again? What might life be like beyond the grave (theirs and ours)? Whatever heaven is like, won’t it be mighty crowded if it’s full of animals? And yet, my beloved companion animal is the most important relationship in my life – surely if relationships endure, he/she will be there with me for ever?
It seems a light-hearted topic, but it is of great importance to many people.


Dog owner and curate, The Revd Andrew North, has recently completed an MA dissertation on this issue. He’s used to being asked these questions when he’s out with the dogs wearing his, er, dog collar. So he thought there might be an interested audience if we set up an evening.
Organiser Peter Nicholls said, “We know that vets get asked these sorts of questions all the time – it’s a real issue for animal lovers. We invite anyone who’d like a researched Christian ‘take’ on the subject to come on the 20th. As an ex-teacher, Andrew is a natural communicator and is something of an entertainer and humorist as well. We anticipate a good evening.”


The event will be in Hethel Church (Church Lane, Hethel, NR14 8HE), starting at 7.30pm on 20th May 2017. Andrew will speak, interval wine and nibbles will be served to lubricate conversation, and there will be plenty of time for questions afterwards.
A suggested donation of £5 towards the church’s heating fund is invited.

Gift Day: Font Restoration

3 months ago

 
Gift Day: Font Restoration

Mulbarton Church is home to many beautiful and ancient pieces of history.  One piece in particular is in urgent need of repair, and without attention very soon, will be lost to us forever.  Our medieval font has stood in Mulbarton church for many centuries, and seen many hundreds of parishioners go through its waters over the years.

Certainly there will be a lot of families in Mulbarton today who will have fond memories of their loved ones being baptised in this font.  Various bodged repairs over the centuries have ended up causing more damage, and it is has almost reached the point of becoming irreparable, and presents something of a safety hazard.

The professional advice is that as it stands it is possible to make a good repair, which would give the font a lease of life for many more centuries.  In order to preserve this precious piece of heritage for future generations, it is worthwhile doing that work - but it must be done soon.

We are appealing to the people of Mulbarton, to whom this heritage belongs, to help fund this urgent work.  £10,000 might seem like a lot of money, but for a thousand years of service, that's only £10 per year, and perhaps only £1 per baptism.  Don't let us be the generation that allows this precious resource to crumble.

Gift Aid forms will be available from the giving desk on Saturday, and we do hope parishioners will dig deep to get behind this project.

If you'd prefer to give to the wider work of the church, there will be opportunity to do that as well, either as a one-off or on an on-going basis.

Refreshments will be available throughout the open day.

Our local historiam, Jill Wright, will also have electronic searchable records of all the registers, dating back 500 years, which will be free for people to search.

As well as self-guided tours, for both grown-ups and children, Jill will also be offering 2 guided tours of the church and its grounds, at 11:30am and 2:30pm.

There is also an opportunity to see the carving of our patron saint, which was erected behind the communion table 80 years ago, and has an interesting story to tell.

We plan to keep the church open during daylight hours every day after this open day event.

Refreshments served throughout the day.

“A Space to Think, A Place to Pray”: Prayer During SATs Week

“A Space to Think, A Place to Pray”: Prayer During SATs Week

“A Space to Think, A Place to Pray”: Prayer During SATs Week

This week, Year 6 pupils across the country will be taking their SATs assessments, including those at Mulbarton Junior School. At Mulbarton Church we appreciate that this can be a stressful time for pupils, families and staff alike. Therefore, we are offering two prayer activities each day during SATs week and we’d like to invite you to join us.

“Coffee and Prayer” will run from 9:15 – 9:45am in Harvest House (Mon – Thurs). Why not join us after the school run for tea and coffee. During our time together we will we read and discuss a passage from the Bible, as well as praying for our young people, their families and school staff. You don't need to be an experienced pray-er, beginners are most welcome! If you've got little ones with you, don't worry, as noisy children are also welcome!

“Time Out in Church” will run from 3:30 – 4:15pm in Mulbarton Church (Mon – Thurs). If your child is feeling anxious at the end of the school day, or maybe just needs a bit of quiet time, then come and join us for squash and biscuits. There will be a couple of prayer stations to explore, which will encourage the children to give their worries to Jesus. Children will need to be accompanied by an adult.

If you have any questions about these activities, please get in touch with The Revd Andrew North (01508 500343 / andrew@mulbchurch.org.uk)

Coffee & Cake Morning with an Easter Egg hunt for the little ones!

There will be a prize raffle too. All proceeds to the Sierra Leone ‘Street Child’ charity. From 25th-30th May Helen will be travelling out to Sierra Leone to work alongside the charity ‘Street Child’ (Registered Charity No: 1128536), established in 2008, that aims to create educational opportunity for some of the world's most vulnerable and poorest children in West Africa and Nepal. The charity works directly with street children in their own environment towards reunification with their families, reintroduction to education and the creation of a sustainable home-life for their ongoing upbringing. Whilst out in Sierra Leone, on the 28th May 2017, she will be taking part in the Sierra Leone Marathon which is the charity’s biggest annual fundraiser. Money raised at the Coffee & Cake morning will contribute towards this. Helen is offering her skills (and time) as an A&E sister volunteering for this project, but need to fundraise to cover costs in order to help the charity provide basic amenities such as toilets and clean drinking water for the schools. She is hoping to raise a total sum of £1500 for this event. (Harvest House is situated 2 houses down from the church towards the Village Hall)

4th @ 4 Mothering Sunday

4th @ 4 Mothering Sunday

Instead of meeting together at Hethel this month, those of us who are going to be around and free in the afternoon are going instead to attend the Mothering Sunday service in Norwich Cathedral which runs from 3.30 pm - 4.30 pm. The Cathedral publicity describes this as "an informal, family-friendly service for Mothering Sunday which will include the distribution of posies".

Do come and join in with this if you are free. I can co-ordinate lifts for those who wish to share transport (let me know). Or anyone who would like to meet up there, let's meet outside the West Front door of the Cathedral at 3.20 pm on Sunday afternoon. Parking should be available in the Cathedral Close.

A historical note on Mothering Sunday:

Mothering Sunday falls on the fourth Sunday in Lent, exactly three weeks before Easter. During the sixteenth century, people returned to their 'mother church', the main church or cathedral of the area, for a service. This was either the church where you were baptised, or the local parish church or more often the nearest cathedral. Anyone who did this was commonly said to have gone "a-mothering". Mothering Sunday became a day when domestic servants were given a day off to visit their mother church, usually with their own mothers and other family members. Children would pick flowers to place in the church or to give to their mothers.

Wherever you are next Sunday have a lovely day and to Mum's especially, may you know God's blessing!

The Big Brew

6 months ago

 
The Big Brew

We’re joining in with the national Fairtrade Fortnight this Saturday.  Join us for Fairtrade refreshments, sale of Fairtrade goods, and good company, as we help drive much needed change for farmers in developing countries.

Having the perfect cuppa or a snack is an important part of our daily routine, yet millions of farmers who produce the treats we enjoy during our breaks are struggling to make a living. However hard they work to provide the products we depend on, they still aren’t paid what they deserve.

In Kenya’s coffee and tea-growing regions one in three people live in poverty, while tea pickers in Malawi earn less than £1.46 a day. This is not enough to provide decent food, education or healthcare for their families or invest in better farming.

The food on our tables, the tea and coffee in our mugs, all come from farmers who work hard but are not paid what they deserve.

Whether in the UK or in Malawi, no one deserves to be short-changed for a hard day’s work. When we reach for the cheapest products, we may be unconsciously feeding exploitation. We become part of the problem, but we can make a conscious choice to be part of the solution and support trade that is fair.

We’re grateful to Rachel’s advocacy and many of us who have supported the Fairtrade movement for some years in our villages, as we’ve learnt what difference it makes around the world. Yet, not enough people are buying it and not enough farmers are benefiting from it. We hope and pray this year for more people to get behind farmers and their families this Fairtrade Fortnight and beyond.

Choose Fairtrade when you next shop, or ask your local store to stock Fairtrade products. Join our Fairtrade "Big Brew" – because farmers deserve sustainable incomes.

Mulbarton Community Choir

New Year, New Choir, New You!

Following the success of the Community Christmas Choir at our village carol service, the singing bug has been well and truly caught in Mulbarton! Therefore, we are pleased to announce the formation of Norfolk’s newest choir; ‘Mulbarton Community Choir’!

Join us for our first rehearsal, which will be in Mulbarton Church on Thursday 26th January (7:30 – 9:30pm). We will be singing a broad repertoire of music; from Bach to Josh Groban, as well as including music from the film ‘Sister Act’. We will be preparing for our debut concert, which will be at 7pm on Saturday 25th March, in Mulbarton Village Hall, where we will be joining forces with Norfolk Wherry Brass.

Our choir is open to the whole community, we do not hold auditions, no previous experience is required and you do not need to be able to read music. All we ask is that you come with a sense of fun and a willingness to learn.

Research has suggests that singing in a choir is good for both your physical and mental health, including; helping increase lung capacity, improve posture and combat the effects of dementia. It also reduces stress and anxiety, and is also thought to help keep the heart healthy. But don’t take our word for it, come and give the Mulbarton Community Choir a try!

For more information, including details of rehearsals and our low termly subscription, please contact the Rev’d Andrew North (tel: 01508 500343 or email: andrew@mulbchurch.org.uk).

Please note, whilst the welcome will be warm, the church can get chilly at this time of year, so please wrap up warm!

A special twist for the Hethel service this year is that Mary and Joseph, who have been travelling round people's homes since the Carol Service at Bradcon Ash on 11th December, will arrive at their destination in Bethlehem, ready for the birth of Jesus.

Many of those families who have hosted the holy family on their journey will be present to celebrate, and we do hope many others will join them too.

Remembrance Service

Remembrance Service

 

One hundred years ago, one of the most tragic episodes of human history was unfolding, in the Battle of the Somme.  On its first day, 1st July 1916, a record 19,240 British servicemen were killed.  There were over 1 million casualties over the battle's 141 days, during which time the allied forces advanced no more than 5 miles.  The battle ended on 18th November 1916.

This Remembrance Sunday, we gather at Mulbarton Church, 5 days before the 100th anniversary of this battle's end.  We come to remember all those who lost their lives or who were wounded and traumatised by their experience.  We remember that there were men from Mulbarton in that battle.  90 men from Mulbarton went to fight in WWI, and 12 never returned.

We gather to commemorate the service and sacrifice of those who died, to reflect upon the human cost of conflict, and, above all, to strengthen our hope for a more peaceful world.  We do hope to see you there.

National Prayer Week

11 months ago

 

 We as a Church have registered to take part in this initiative. The Welcome to its website states ‘ A weekend to initiate a wave of prayer over our nation, one life, one street, one community at a time. We believe that local people praying for their community can transform the nation. Central to National Prayer Weekend 2016 is the heart to see people in our local communities know and encounter God as their Father through the power of prayer.’ It is hoped to hold a prayer meeting in each of the Churches in the benefice over the weekend. Please look out for more details in Pews News or via the Church e-mail. As part of connecting with our community a suggestion made by the organisers is to ask for prayer requests from our community. So in preparation for the weekend  you might like to ask your neighbours what they would like the Church to pray for. Thanks Patrick Theobald For more see: www.national-prayer-weekend.com

"You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, to be my witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and to the ends of the Earth"

As we await the return of Christ, the first and foremost thing that our Lord Jesus has left us to do is to let everybody know about what God has done for them through the coming, the death, the resurrection and the ascension of Jesus Christ.

Our news is good.  Our news is urgent.

Swapan Biswas has spent most of his life introducing others to the Lord Jesus, and all that God has done for them, as he's travelled the foothills of the Himalayas.  His father before him, BK Biswas, started evangelising and planting churches in the 1950s, and has an inspiring testimony to the grace of God.  They have seen strong and steady growth every year.  "Reaching the unreached" has been the consistent vision over the decades.  Swapan reports:

"This year we praised God to see many who accepted Christ and 148 people who took their next step in baptism. We celebrate in mentioning the numbers since we strongly believe every number has a name and a story behind, which matters to God. We want to see the gospel move in North Bengal, Sikkim and Bhutan. Jesus is using every individual in our movement to reach out and I strongly believe that the best is yet to come."

Faithfully evangelising, baptising, engaging youth and children, advocating for displaced communities, assisting with social work and encouraging self-supporting business, reaching, raising and releasing leaders and pastors - it's all part of the life flow of the Masihi Mandli churches, reaching the unreached.

Now Swapan is touring the UK, bringing a much needed message to our churches, inspiring us to recapture the heart of mission, reaching our own unreached.

God is longing for the good news to go to the nations.  Yet, for us, sharing our faith can sometimes feel awkward or difficult.  Swapan comes from a place of tremendous experience, and offers real helpful inspiration about how to be faithful to God over the long haul in our own context.  This is something we need.

Come along on Saturday morning, 17th September, to the House of Prayer in Norwich.  Come to meet with the living God.  Come to hear the stories of God at work in that north-east corner of India.  Come to hear the message that God is bringing to us to recapture the heart of mission.  Come to receive a fresh anointing as Swapan prays for us to be released in new ways and to receive more of the Holy Spirit's power to be witnesses, according to Christ's command.

This is not another seminar on evangelism, or church-planting.  This is simply an opportunity, for us in Norfolk, to receive something of God into our hearts that could result in an unstoppable and unforced outflow of the mission of God into God's world.

The event is open to all. Don't miss it!

Heritage Open Day

11 months ago

 

What was it like here 100 years ago? 500 years ago? 1000 years ago? Was the church spun out of Wymondham Abbey in the early 1100s? How old is the Thorn? Is the mound near the Thorn a tumulus? Was the original village of Hethel in the field to the east of the Church? What did the farmland look like before the airfield was built in 1943? And after?

 

Last summer, a group of final year UEA history students surveyed and researched the landscape of Hethel. And wrote dissertations. On September 10 and 11 (10am to 5pm) there will be an exhibition of their work in Hethel Church, which looks at some of the questions above. Some of the now-graduates will be around to discuss their findings with you, and, if you like, take you on a guided tour of the ground. Timings on our website www.acny.org.uk/hethel. Drinks, cake and light lunches will be on sale (but the rest is free!).
389 Bomb Group Memorial Exhibition is also open for HODs – about 10 minutes walk from the church. You can see maps of the airfield as it was, numerous artefacts, and the amazing mural of Christ on the cross.

Norfolk Churches Bike Ride

11 months ago

 

Thousands of individuals, families and groups of all ages, will take part in the  annual "bike ride" on Saturday 10 Sept 2016, 9am to 5pm, and will be planning their routes and signing up sponsors from now until bike ride day.  Sponsor forms will be available in the churches, and by down loading from Norfolk Churches Trust website. Riders and walkers choose which local church will receive half of their sponsor money. The remainder goes to Norfolk Churches Trust to be  given out as grants for essential repairs to our historic churches in need of repair.  The Bike Ride has raised around £2,800,000 over the past 32 years.   Sponsorship forms for Mulbarton Church are also available from Tony James Tony has kindly agreed to co-ordinate the effort with staffing  Mulbarton Church for this event. We really need people to offer to be in the Church, or Harvest House, to sign the cyclists' sheets and offer hospitality (refreshments will be made available).  Please let Tony, Jill Wright or Caroline know if you are able to spare an hour (or two!) on that  Saturday to help.  It would be great if several people could do a stint - last time Tony did it on his own!

Hethel: then, now and in-between

Hethel: then, now and in-between

A thousand years of landscape history - Part 1

In June 2015 a group of third-year students from the UEA surveyed the landscape of Hethel, especially the area around All Saints Church, the Hethel Thorn, Moat House and the remains of the eastern end of the airfield. This work fed into a range of research projects covering topics from the medieval period to the 20 th century.

Some of the students, now graduates, and lecturer Dr Jon Gregory will share their conclusions at this and a follow-up event at the church.

Reading a Landscape: Fieldwork & Landscape History in Hethel

UEA’s Dr Jon Gregory will explain the various techniques used by landscape historians, the work carried out here last summer and the conclusions (and further questions!) arising from the research projects. Jon will illustrate his talk, and take questions after a decent pause for wine and nibbles.

Suggested donation £7, shared between the church's heating fund and a charity.

More info or to reserve your seat, please contact Peter or Cathy Nicholls.

Thinking Christianly about the EU

Thinking Christianly about the EU

Bishop Alan is joining us in Harvest House at 10am on Saturday 18th June, ahead of vote day on 23rd June.  This will be an occasion to bring all of our ponderings to date, and think together about how we process all of that in a Christian way, in order to help us come to our final decision, whether we vote in or out.

There will be some reflections on how we approach the issue as well as space to bring our own questions and thoughts.

We won't be looking to come to conclusions about how to vote, nor are we offering loads of political expertise.  Rather we're offering a theological and biblical sounding board, so that we might seek together for insight into how to sift the assertions that are coming to us and how to think Christianly about this important vote.

In the meantime, the diocese have gathered a selection of resources to help us think Christianly about this important moment in UK history.

Valentine Renewal of Wedding Vows

2 years ago

 
Valentine Renewal of Wedding Vows

St. Valentine’s Day this year falls on a Sunday, so we have a superb opportunity to gather couples who live locally or who have married in one of our churches, along with family and friends, to celebrate the gift of marriage.  It's a way of saying that the church cares even beyond the wedding day, and we’re always here for people.  And what more romantic way could there be to celebrate Valentine’s Day than with a renewal of wedding vows back in the place where you were wed or in a local village church?  However many couples are able to come along will all have the opportunity to renew vows all at the same time.  If you know someone you think would like a personal invite, please contact me and I’ll arrange it.

The ceremony itself will be a brief but meaningful occasion. The church bells will ring out before and after, and afterwards we will serve champagne and fruitcake. Folk would be welcome to stay for as long as they like to enjoy the romantic ambience of our beautiful ancient church building, specially decorated for the occasion. Of course, children would be more than welcome. There is no need to book ahead. We would be delighted to see a good crowd. Also, you needn’t be married to come along, even though that’s where the focus will be. This will be an act of worship and anyone is most welcome. If you’d like to let us know you’ll be coming along, however, it would help with planning the refreshments, and you can get in touch with me. There is no charge for this event.

The service will last for about 40 minutes, with the following running order:

Welcome

Hymn: Love Divine, all loves excelling

Greeting

Reading: 1 Corinthians 13:1-8a

Confession & Collect

Reading: John 10:1-15

Hymn: Amazing grace!

Reading: Ephesians 5:25-33

Can we disagree well over same-sex relationships? The Pilling Report and Shared Conversations

2 years ago

 
Can we disagree well over same-sex relationships? The Pilling Report and Shared Conversations
This free evening event, hosted by the Diocese of Norwich for its clergy and people, will have four speakers leading a discussion on whether we can find ways to disagree well over issues of human sexuality.
 
In response to the Pilling Report a process of shared conversations is underway across the Church of England. The focus is on the church’s mission in the light of immense cultural change around the issue of human sexuality. The church’s calling is to present the gospel afresh in each generation, and a changing social context will always raise new questions. The task is to be clear about how to be an effective missionary church in a changing culture around human sexuality.

There appears to be no realistic expectation of achieving consensus on these matters in the foreseeable future, and so the Archbishop of Canterbury has stressed the importance of working at reaching ‘good disagreement’. For this to happen, we will need to learn to listen charitably and respectfully to those with whom we disagree. We will need to try to find something of Christ in one another in spite of our disagreements. We will need to find models in the Scriptures and in our tradition that help us to see how Christians can disagree well enabling us to be effective in mission.

One of the key questions proposed in the Pilling Report (by the Revd. Professor Oliver O’Donovan) is whether some form of pastoral accommodation is an option to which we can subscribe? We wish, therefore, to address the question of what is required of Christians on all sides of the debate about human sexuality if we are to model good disagreement.

Speakers include:

The Revd. Canon Dr. Phil Groves who is heading up the Continuing Indaba process for the Anglican Communion

The Revd. Dr. Frances Henderson will give a perspective from the Church of Scotland

The Revd. Dr. Arnold Browne will explore a biblical perspective on ‘good disagreement’

The Revd. Dr. Andrew Atherstone of Wycliffe Hall, Oxford, will speak from a conservative evangelical viewpoint.

Come and help manage God's Acre at Hethel!

On Sundays 23th and 30th August, 6th and 20th September (if necessary) at 2 pm. We will be mowing Hethel Churchyard as part of its management as a Conservation churchyard. Tools provided (bring your own if you wish) and also great refreshments. All welcome to any of the Sunday afternoons for as long as you can stay. Dr Anne Edwards who heads up the mowing team has written : "Hethel churchyard is a remnant of the ancient meadows, flower-rich grasslands, which were once widespread in the countryside but are now disappearing at an alarming rate. It has been estimated that since 1945 Norfolk has lost 98% of its meadows to development, overgrazing, ploughing or by herbicide and fertiliser usage. Since the early 1990s this churchyard has been managed by volunteers from the Wymondham Nature Group (WyNG) and from the PCC via the Norfolk Wildlife Trust conservation scheme. The churchyard is mown only once ayear, at the end of the summer, in the manner of a traditional hay meadow. The cut vegetation is raked and taken away to ensure that the fertility of the ground is kept low. If the grass was mown regularly then delicate wildflowers could not survive and any increase in fertility would mean they could not compete with more vigorous plants like nettles. The undisturbed nature of the churchyard makes it a quiet refuge for all sorts of wildlife and there is a magnificent floral display throughout the year." Come and join us if you can! For more information contact Cathy and Peter (01508 570557) or Irene (01953 604228)

Care of Planet; Care of Neighbour

Care of Creation; Care of Neighbour – Hethel Church’s ‘flagship’ event for 2015 takes place over the weekend 11-13 September. The programme of nine ‘TED Talks’ on the Saturday is taking shape, from John Moore on national energy regulations and the possibility of community ‘grids’ to Alex Bilham giving the onceover on a Nissan electric car, and from Ruth Valerio on community pig farms to me on travelling to Prague, Madrid, Rome and Corsica by rail. Oh, and Paul Woodmin on Electric Highways plus Master Composters on, er, how to compost. Ruth will kick us off on the Friday evening with a discussion on Why we should care for God’s Earth (Hethel Church, 7.30pm). I expect it will be mainly followers of Jesus who come to that; please put it in your diary. There was a great turn-out at the recent midweek talk in Mulbarton Church on creation; this topic is just as important!

We have a great team (Irene Woodward, Janet Negal, Diane Robinson and Dr Anne Edwards BEM) working on a biodiversity ‘thread’, with exhibits and lots of activities for children and adults in the churchyard. And Hethel Church’s new kitchen unit will be invaluable for providing food and drinks all day both days – low carbon impact, of course.

If you camped for the whole weekend, you wouldn’t be bored, so if it’s not yet in your diary, do that now! Finally, I’ve had just one kind offer to help deliver flyers in Mulbarton and Flordon; can anyone else help please? (570557 / peternic@allbelievers.org). Peter Nicholls

KING JOHN AND HETHEL: TRUTHS AND MYTHS

2 years ago

 
KING JOHN AND HETHEL: TRUTHS AND MYTHS

Stephen Church is Professor of Medieval History at UEA. He has been on TV and other media a lot recently because he's an expert and a lively writer and presenter on King John and Magna Carta.

Hethel and its Old Thorn (NWT reserve) has long had rumoured associations with King John – Kelly's Directory of 1883 notes that the thorn "dates as far back as the time of King John, 1214", for example. It's interesting that the renewed Mulbarton Village website claims a bit of King John, too! "Mulbarton is believed to be one of the possible locations for King John's lost caravan of gold in 1215" says one of the scrolling pictures at www.mulbarton.info.

On Saturday evening, 1st August at 7.30pm at Hethel church, Prof Stephen will give an illustrated talk confirming (or debunking) the stories and sharing something of what life must have been like in the Norfolk countryside in the 13th century, when Norwich was England's second city. Before questions, appropriate refreshments (spiced wine; sweet beer; cider...) will be served in an interval. Suggested donation £6.50.

Don't just come yourselves, tell your neighbours and friends! Tickets from Peter or Cathy (570557 /peternic@allbelievers.org) or on the door (unless we sell out!) Peter Nicholls

Proclaiming Creation in a Scientific Age

2 years ago

 
Proclaiming Creation in a Scientific Age

We welcome Dominic Statham, from Creation Ministries International, to Mulbarton Church.  Dominic will give an interesting presentation that engages with the issues around origins and how we talk about this in today's world.  There will be opportunities to ask questions.  Just bring an inquisitive and open mind!

Dominic became a Christian as a student in the early eighties. Over the following years, he became convinced of the need to hold firmly to the Bible as the basis for Christian belief and practice. Intrigued by the endless media assertions that “evolution is a fact” and that “the Bible is wrong”, he decided to investigate the scientific issues for himself. He was astonished by the weakness of the arguments presented by evolutionists, and is now keen to help others realise that there is no conflict between science and Christianity, and that the Bible can be trusted from the very first verse.

Dominic has a particular interest in Christian ethics, and his conviction that the Bible is true stems, in part, from his growing appreciation of the wisdom contained in both the Old and New Testaments. These, he has come to realise, perfectly portray the nature of man—his spiritual and moral needs—and provide an understanding of godliness and rightful living that can be found nowhere else. He is convinced that no book is more needed or more relevant in our current age than the Bible.

Dominic is a Chartered Engineer and graduate of Loughborough University in the UK. He has extensive experience of both manufacturing and product development and holds a number of patents. As an employee of Rolls Royce, he worked on projects for the Panavia Tornado and Eurofighter Typhoon and, as an employee of GKN, engineering drivelines for Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles. He is a speaker and writer for CMI-UK/Europe and the author of Evolution: Good Science? Exposing the ideological nature of Darwin’s theory.

Freedom in Christ Leaders' Training

Freedom in Christ Leaders' Training

A group of us from the benefice will be attending this afternoon session in Norwich to explore what the FiC course might be able to offer us as we seek to go deeper in following Christ here in this group of churches.

If you're interested in coming along, please contact Adrian asap. 

Freedom In Christ Ministries has proven that this ‘identity-based discipleship’ is highly effective. Over 200,000 UK Christians in around 4,000 churches have been through our core resource, The Freedom In Christ Discipleship Course, and we have trained thousands of church leaders in Biblical discipleship principles.

You and other leaders in your church are warmly invited to this briefing event, A Strategy For Whole-Church Discipleship. In two hours, we’ll outline three key concepts for developing a church-wide discipleship strategy and introduce you to our core tools.

More details on the day here.

Praise Bash, with Rev Dr Medad Birungi

Contemporary charismatic worship, with an inspiring talk from Medad, author of "Tombstones and Banana Trees", and founder of World Shine Ministries, which supports some of the poorest in Uganda and has seen hundreds of thousands saved, healed and delivered through their inter-denominational evangelistic campaigns.  There will be an opportunity to receive prayer for healing or anything else.  The evening is open to anyone.

This year, Medad joined David Cameron and others form the UK government and UNICEF at the Girl Summit, and spoke on the role of education in ending gender-based violence and forced marriage.  He has also been connecting an emerging network of new houses of prayer across several countries, and seen the work of World Shine Ministries grow in Uganda.

Following the 2013 Norwich Diocesan Lent Project, that raised funds for the World Shine School, Medad has been able to provide boarding facilities for over 100 children (out of about 700) at the school, which has been a great success.  We are exploring the possibility of extending the education provision to include secondary this year.
