St Nicholas Church
Warm and Welcoming Traditional Anglican Worship
St Nicholas Church, Bracon Ash is always open and visitors are very welcome to explore this attractive and ancient church. There is room for cars to park on the grass verge outside the church gate. Alternatively the elderly and disabled are welcome to drive up the church path itself, by arrangement with the churchwarden.
There are two services a month. Morning Prayer is on the first Sunday in the month at 9.00 and Holy Communion is on the third Sunday at 9.00.
The services follow the Traditional Common Worship pattern. Festivals are shared with Hethel Church and the rest of the benefice. The notice board outside the church is always up to date.
We also hold a Messy Church every school holiday and half term break for children and their families.

Coffee and Prayer
Thu, 29 Jun, 2017, 9:15am @ Mulbarton Church
Would you like to take some time out of your week to pray, but struggle to find the time?
Then why not join us after the school drop-off on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9:15am for Coffee and Prayer.
Join us downstairs in Harvest House from 9:15am - 9:45am where tea and coffee are available. During our time together we read and discuss a passage from the Bible. There is also space to pray for the needs of our world, as well as things which are on your own heart and mind.
You don't need to be an experienced pray-er, beginners are always welcome! If you've got little ones with you, don't worry, as noisy children are also welcome!

Easter Values and APCM Vision
Posted: Wed, 29 Mar, 2017 (3 months ago) by Adrian
April is the month in which we have to have our annual church meetings. It is also the month In which Easter often falls - this year it's right in the middle of April. It always strikes me as something of a juxtaposition. Remembering the week leading up to Jesus' death and celebrating His resurrection is perhaps the most intensely spiritual and searching of all our festivals. The word "crucial" comes from the Latin "crux", meaning "cross", and this week of celebration is truly crucial in every sense. On the other hand, we have the intensely practical work of attending to the legal aspects of running 4 charities, and ensuring that notices, electoral rolls, and reports are all in order for the annual meetings.
So, I find myself with this balance between spiritual and practical, between meditating on the timeless meaning of Jesus conquering death, and reading up on the latest changes around charity regulations, and making sure we do what we should. In reality, both these things are important.
We have to keep circling back to the roots of what we believe and what really makes us get out of bed in the morning. How Jesus has expressed His love to us in the person of Jesus Christ and in the events of Holy Week, is nothing short of astonishing, and it does lie at the heart of all we engage in. And yet we find ourselves with our own unique context and our own specific calling to pursue.
The APCMs provide an opportunity to review how we are living out God's call upon us and to cast the vision for where God is calling us to next. The annual meetings are much more than a series of talking heads, giving dry reports out of duty to the demands of charity law. They are a time when we can gather the wider church family, celebrate what God has done in the past year and seek God together for fresh vision and direction in the year ahead.
Our foundations and our values remain constant, and the resurrection celebrations bring us back to these. But our vision shifts and turns as the Spirit blows in new directions, and our annual meetings give ear to this.
I do hope to see as many folk as possible from the church families gathering through April, to seek both a re-grounding with God and a re-envisioning from Him.
