Hethel Bat Walk

Hethel Bat Walk

On Saturday 22 June, our friend and bat expert Jane Harris from East Carleton is running another bat evening for us, meeting in church at 8pm.

Jane will talk, show slides and videos of bats and their conservation for about an hour. We'll have a refreshment break and then go out on foot into the neighbouring woods and countryside to see what's about. Well, more to hear than to see:  Jane brings a number of bat detectors that make the supersonic echo-locating calls of bats audible to us humans. Last time, she also had a sophisticated analyser that told her what sorts of bats were sounding off. This is a fund-raiser for the tower and bell fund and to make a gift to Jane for her time.

Please book to come - numbers will be limited - at https://bit.ly/hethelbats. We are suggesting £10 for adults and £5 for children, but there's an opportunity to pay what you can afford.

We do hope to see you there.

EcoChurch Strategy Meeting

2 months ago

 
EcoChurch Strategy Meeting

Mulbarton PCC has agreed that we will try to achieve at least the Bronze Eco Church award by July 2024. The PCC has identified some quick wins, such as installing a compost bin and a bike rack in the churchyard, both of which should be in place in the next few weeks.

However, to really embed the ethos of Eco Church and ensure that whatever we do is sustainable in the long run, we want everyone to feel involved with this and would value input from all members of the church family and beyond. We are hoping that a lot of people doing small things will ultimately result in a big change.

We know we can utilise the experience from other churches who have taken this path and certainly connecting with other organisations and groups in the village such as the school, MALGA Environment Group, and the uniform groups, would be part of the process, as we will be able to achieve far more by working together with others in the community.

 In order to take this forward, a group of interested church members would be wonderful. An initial meeting will take place on Monday 20th May, 7:30pm at Jill Wright’s home, 22 Birchfield Gardens.

This will be an opportunity to learn more about Eco Church, find out what other churches have been doing, and begin to plan what we might be able to achieve and decide on one of two ideas we can realistically put in place over the next year. If you cannot make the meeting but are still interested, do contact me and I will keep you in touch with the way forward.

Hot cross buns and drinks served in Harvest House afterwards.

Choir Concert - Postponed from 25th Feb to 24th March

Choir Concert  - Postponed from 25th Feb to 24th March

Come and enjoy a 'chorale' drawn from Mulbarton Community Choir singing some of their wide and growing range of songs, accompanied by the inimitable Laurie Bennett. What could be better on a chilly March Sunday afternoon than 40 minutes of music, a spacious interval with tea (coffee or chocolate) and as much home-made cake as you can eat, followed by another half-hour of music? You'll do some good as well because your ticket price will kick-off the church's charitable giving for 2024 and add to the fund we've started to repair the timberwork in the tower and bring the bell back into operation. Suggested contribution: £8.00

Ash Wednesday Service

5 months ago

 
Ash Wednesday Service

Ash Wednesday marks the start of the observation of Lent, a season of self-examination, penitence, self-denial, study, and preparation for Easter. Lent is often described as lasting forty days (excluding Sundays) which recalls the Biblical account of Jesus’s temptation in the wilderness (Luke 4.1-13).

Ashes are an ancient sign of penitence. From the Middle Ages onward it has been a custom to begin Lent by having the sign of the cross marked on one’s forehead in ash.

Flordon Film Club

Flordon Film Club will be screening THE OLD OAK in St. Michael's Community Centre Wednesday 20th December, with free mulled wine and mince pies!  The doors open at 7.00pm and the film starts at 7.45.

This is Ken Loach’s latest film (and some would say one of his best), which has the contemporary theme of refugees.  “A lot could be said about The Old Oak’s beautiful cinematography, excellent acting, and marvellous directing, all of which make this story come to life, but what really stands out the most in the film is the humanity that shines throughout. It is a beautiful reminder of what a community is and can be, regardless of country of origin, religion, or skin colour.” (Loud and Clear Reviews)

Tickets are £5 each, and annual membership which is now due also is £5. To book or for more information about the club please contact David on 470118 or david020747@hotmail.co.uk

Please note: In 2024 meetings will be held on the second Wednesday of the month, and so the following meeting will be on Wednesday 14 February. The film has yet to be chosen.

Beating the Bounds - Parish Walk

"Beating the Bounds" is an ancient tradition and, for us, a great opportunity to walk around our villages together, praying for our neighbours, the land, the crops, the work of local farmers and all the activities which make up our village life.

All welcome to meet on the verge outside Hethel Church at 2.30 pm to begin our walk. Dogs welcome too!

Tea and cakes on our return at 4.30 pm.

Good Friday Meditative

Good Friday Meditative

Christians believe that Jesus died at 3pm on that terrible but wonderful day 2000 years ago, the day we remember on Good Friday.  So this event commemorates his last 60 minutes as a man on Planet Earth.

Good Friday Walk

Good Friday Walk

NB: Updates through the 7 stages will be posted on our Facebook Page as we progress!

https://www.facebook.com/Mulbchurch

We meet at the Village Sign on the north of the Common, and will walk with the cross past almost every house in the village, coming back to the village sign, where we will erect a cross, hear some Bible readings, say some prayers and sing a song.

Covid safety allowing, we hope to serve hot cross buns in Harvest House afterwards.

Anyone is welcome to join us for the whole walk, for a part of it, or meet us at about noon at the village sign for the public act of worship, or in Harvest House for a bun!

The route we will walk is shown below, so you can work out roughly when to expect us, if you want to join as we walk past your house.

Lent Course 6: 40 Prayers for 40 Days

Lent Course 6: 40 Prayers for 40 Days

The Diocese of Norwich has recently embraced a new Vision: Transformed by Christ: Prayerful, Pastoral, Prophetic. So, to support our ‘Prayerful’ focus in the Vision’s first year, I’m offering a prayer a day during this Lenten season. Once again, because I’ve decided to include the six Sundays of Lent (and to end with Easter Day itself), that’s actually 47 (not 40) prayers!
 
How have I chosen the prayers? Well, some of my choices have been triggered by special days in the calendar or by biblical readings set for that day. Others have emerged out of what’s going on in the world around us. I’ve deliberately spread the net wide and drawn on prayers from across the globe, centuries and traditions. Each prayer will be accompanied by a reflection, an image and often by a musical setting too.

Tenebrae: Service of shadows

2 years ago

 
Tenebrae: Service of shadows

The word "tenebrae" comes from the Latin meaning "darkness" or "shadows". The Tenebrae is an ancient Christian Holy Week service that makes use of gradually diminishing light through the extinguishing of candles to symbolize the events of that week from the triumphant Palm Sunday entry through Jesus' burial.

This increasing darkness symbolizes the approaching darkness of Jesus' death and of hopelessness in the world without God. The service concludes in darkness, with a final candle, representing Christ, carried out of the church, symbolizing the death of Jesus.

It is a simple service, with 6 candles, 8 readings, some music and some silence.  A loud noise may also sound symbolizing the closing of Jesus' tomb. The worshipers then leave in silence to ponder the events of Holy Week, the impact of Christ's death and the expectation of the coming Resurrection.

Our tea and crumpet stall is open in church! In fact, it was the toasted teacakes that flew off the shelves in January, so if you prefer, they'll be available too. Both with, of course, lashings of butter, honey, golden syrup, jam - whatever. 2pm to 5pm.

The weather looks good, so come for a pleasant afternoon stroll and break your journey with refreshments in a warm church with soothing music wafting round. You may even wish to say a prayer for world peace while you're here – the Church of England has asked all churches to make Sunday a day of prayer for peace. We'll put some resources out to make it easy for you to spend a few moments at the front in silent prayer if (and only if) you wish.

We'll also be serving on Sunday 27 March. This happens to be Mothering Sunday and there'll be some traditional simnel cake for mums of all ages.

Carols by Candlelight

Our carols by candlelight service is going ahead, despire the COVID situation having changed a bit in the last few days.

First, the Mulbarton Community Choir committee has decided that it would be unwise to sing or practice at all over the next few weeks, a decision which we completely respect. So they won't be singing for us on Sunday, or in the Mulbarton village event on the 19th.

We will follow all government guidelines for the event, which principally amounts to face coverings being required at all times except when eating and drinking (we plan to go ahead with drinks and mince pies afterwards).

If you have booked but are uneasy about coming, again, the decision is yours. If you can let me know, please do, but now that the choir en masse is no longer coming, I doubt we will be short of seats and in need of rebooking any no longer needed.

Whatever, the church has been beautifully decorated and is open for visits at any time.

Remembering Loved Ones

Remembering Loved Ones

Join us for a special service, as we remember those we have loved and lost.

With traditional hymns and an opportunity to light a candle in memory of a lost loved one, this is a special benefice occasion, as we continue to pray our goodbyes.  If you would like a name read out during the service, there will be someone writing down names at the door as you come in, or you can let Adrian know ahead of time.

There will be a new resource available on the night to buy at a discounted price of £12 - "Scent of Water", by Penelope Swithinbank.

When the words won’t come and perhaps God seems far away; when the grief threatens to overwhelm. There are daily devotionals to dip into, beautiful photos for reflection, meditations to ponder. And a section for those special days such as the day of the funeral, the first Christmas or the first anniversary. It’s produced as a lovely hardback book. And it’s dyslexic friendly.

It’s been described as

'A simple, non- demanding devotional, of maybe a single line from scripture and a word that spoke into my pain …. Alongside her heart cries are the gentle words of God, the reassurances, the moments of strength for the weary soul, the thankfulness. It is just so beautifully moving to read. And to return to, over and over again.'

'Your short reflections and lovely illustrations are just what I need as I recover…’ 

Refreshments will be served after the service.

The Trams of Norwich: Transforming Streets, Transforming Lives

We welcome Frances and Michael Holmes back to Flordon to give us another of their interesting and entertaining talks:

Admission: suggested donation of £5 includes a glass of wine and nibbles.  Please book with Janet.

In 1900 trams arrived on Norwich’s streets. They were greeted with awe as a technological wonder that not only revolutionised travel but also radically changed the City. Using a combination of images, archive material and contemporary accounts Frances & Michael Holmes will illustrate that the story of the trams is about so much more than a vehicle – It is the story of how that vehicle transformed our city.

Church at Hanover: Harvest

Our first Sunday service back in Hanover Lounge since February 2020, nineteen months ago!

It is also our first Harvest service of the season, in which we receive gifts for Norwich foodbank, and any monetary donations will go to support the good work being done by our mission partner, Tearfund.

It is important that we continue to be mindful about the risk of coronavirus, and do what we can to keep as safe as possible.  To this end, we will keep the lounge as well ventilated as we can, and will arrange the seating to allow as much space between people as possible.

We ask that people do wear masks.  We are advised that mask-wearing is the most significant action we can take to mitigate the spread of the virus, when meeting indoors.

We will be serving refreshments in the lounge after the service - hot drinks and biscuits - and have thought about how to do this as safely as possible.

It will be a joy to be together again after such a long break, and we look forward to re-engaging with the simplicty, comfort, friendship and meaningful God moments we have come to expect with Church @ Hanover.

All Saints, Hethel has organised a ‘Celebration of Creation’ weekend on 26-27 June, 2021 to which all in the locality are welcome.

The weekend will begin at 4.15am with a short walk to enjoy the burning sunrise followed by a leisurely wander listening for birdsong with local ornithologist Mike Harvey.

Brother Sam, past leader of the European Province of the Society of Saint Francis, will also join the weekend. Many people will have heard of St Francis of Assisi who had an extraordinary ability to commune with nature, to see its beauty and to sense the interconnectedness of all things under God. On Saturday, Brother Sam will read St Francis’ “swansong”, Canticle of the Creatures, after sunrise; he will give a keynote talk and lead a ‘Five Senses Walk’ in the afternoon as well as preaching on Sunday and repeating the walk.

On Saturday evening the building will be cleared for a ceilidh – the first ever so far as is known! – led by Suffolk band Skylarking, while Sunday also offers a walk with eminent naturalist Dr Anne Edwards BEM.

Throughout the weekend Hethel church will house an ‘exhibition of beauty’: photographs, paintings, craft objects, flower arrangements, fragrances and music.

Hethel Church is one of only two churches in the county to have achieved Silver standard in the national EcoChurch scheme. There will be a display explaining the scheme and how Hethel ticked the necessary boxes.

We pray that this weekend will be a lot of fun and will help us all to rejoice at the natural beauty that surrounds us: from Hethel Churchyard, full of wildflowers and associated prolific insect life in late June, to the exhibition and the music and dancing of the ceilidh. Having Brother Sam SSF help us explore the spiritual side of creation care is a massive bonus. Co-author of the recently published ‘Seeing Differently’, he’s a national figure who speaks widely and participates in online seminars such as St Paul’s Cathedral’s recent ‘Is Covid-19 a wake up call to us?’ We expect to be challenged as well as interested and encouraged!”

Action headlines!

  • We want more entries to the exhibition of beauty. Have you taken photos of a beautiful place? A beautiful aspect of nature? Have you painted or drawn something? Love a particular piece of music for its beauty? Can create a beautiful or highly fragrant flower arrangement? Please get in touch.
  • If you would like to find out more about Franciscan spirituality, come to an informal lunch with Brother Sam (12.30 Saturday 26th) and ideally stay for his talk afterwards.
  • Or you could go for a Five Senses walk with Br. Sam and learn about how the natural world connects us to God.
  • In 2020, the sunrise was clear, staggeringly beautiful and quite moving. Get up at 4am and join us in hope in 2021. Brother Sam will recite what is subtitled the Canticle to Brother Sun, reminding us of our connections with nature and through it with God. Birds and breakfast follow!
  • If you want to encounter some unusual and beautiful insects or flowers, join Dr Anne Edwards on Sunday 27th
  • Celebrate and give thanks through music and dance – ceilidh and pizza with us on Saturday evening, not often seen in a 12th century Norfolk church!
  • Join us for a service at 9am in Bracon Ash Church or 4.30pm on Sunday, both with Br. Sam SSF.

 

More information and how to book for certain events is on the church website www.acny.org.uk/hethel.

COVID-19 update: If on 21.6.21 all restrictions are not lifted as expected on the ‘roadmap’, most activities can legally go ahead with minimal change. If it proves impossible to hold the ceilidh, tickets bought will be reimbursed, or it will happen later in the year as a stand-alone event.

 

Brother Samuel SSF was Guardian of Hillfield Friary for many years, where he led the Hillfield Project on living in an ecologically sustainable way following St Francis’ vision of creation. It is now a mixed community of professed religious brothers and lay men and women, young, old, married and single. Br. Sam has been Minister of the European Province of the Society of Saint Francis (SSF) and in 2016 his outstanding service was recognised by Archbishop Justin through the Dunstan Award for Prayer and the Religious Life. With his Franciscan co-authors, Br. Sam’s 2021 book, Seeing Differently explores and explains how Franciscans see creation.

Dr Anne Edwards BEM is a plant scientist based at the John Innes Centre who was the first person in the UK to identify Ash Dieback disease in England. Anne also works on grass pea, one of the oldest known crops, seeking to develop a toxin-free variety that can be used as a main crop by smallholder farmers in Europe, Africa and the Indian sub-continent. In 2015 Anne was awarded the British Empire Medal for services to the environment. For three decades, she has advised on and, with a team of volunteers, managed Hethel’s biodiversity-award-winning churchyard.

Mike Harvey spent many years travelling the world working for Cable and Wireless, which gave him the opportunity to specialise in the birds of the West Indies, and, later, birds in West Africa. Since retirement he has made numerous visits to see the birds of Europe. He has volunteered with Norfolk Wildlife Trust for over a decade, leading monthly wildlife walks in different places all over the county. He also grows cacti at home! It is not surprising that he can modestly claim familiarity “with the songs of most of our birds here in Norfolk”.

Eco Church is the award scheme for churches in England and Wales who want to demonstrate that the gospel is good news for God’s earth. An online survey asks probing questions about how a church looks after buildings and land; about its engagement with its local community and global campaigns; and about the personal lifestyles of the congregation.

Tenebrae

3 years ago

 
Tenebrae

To book your place at Flordon Church for this service please click here

The word "tenebrae" comes from the Latin meaning "darkness" or "shadows". The Tenebrae is an ancient Christian Holy Week service that makes use of gradually diminishing light through the extinguishing of candles to symbolize the events of that week from the triumphant Palm Sunday entry through Jesus' burial.

This increasing darkness symbolizes the approaching darkness of Jesus' death and of hopelessness in the world without God. The service concludes in darkness, with a final candle, representing Christ, carried out of the church, symbolizing the death of Jesus.

It is a simple service, with 7 candles, 8 readings, some music and some silence.  A loud noise may also sound symbolizing the closing of Jesus' tomb. The worshipers then leave in silence to ponder the events of Holy Week, the impact of Christ's death and the expectation of the coming Resurrection.  

If you would like to join in remotely this year as part of your personal Holy Week devotions, at a time to suit you, you can watch last year's Zoom-streamed service on the benefice YouTube channel or right here:

If you would like to follow along at home with a paper copy of the service sheet, you can download one here.

Thy Kingdom Come

4 years ago

 
Thy Kingdom Come

A global wave of prayer from Ascension Day to Pentecost

For 11 days, Christians from all denominations around the world commit to spending special time in prayer for the people they know as well as the whole world as we shine a light on the darkness of this world.  This finishes on the Day of Pentecost  - the great celebration of the coming of the promised Holy Spirit.  This has been happening for a few years now but this year is a bit different – for obvious reasons!  To celebrate Christians joining in prayer this year we are combining forces, and encouraging everyone to join in with opportunities locally, in the deanery (collection of local churches, from Hingham to Cringleford) as well as the wider diocese, and national and global church.

Find out more on the dedicated website: https://www.thykingdomcome.global

We are invited to pray with Christians worldwide for God’s Spirit to empower OURSELVES to be witnesses for Jesus Christ and for OTHER PEOPLE to come to know Jesus. Each day there is a theme – pray about that theme for YOURSELF and for OTHERS (maybe 5 – friends, family, neighbours) that they may be drawn closer to Jesus. Readings are added to help you think about each theme.

Ascension Day – BELONGING   (Ephesians 1 verses 3 to 8)

Friday 22nd – GRACE  (Ephesians 2 verses 8 to 10)

Saturday 23rd – COURAGE  (Joshua 1 verses 7 to 9)

Sunday 24th – WISDOM  (Proverbs 2 verses 1 to 6)

Monday 25th – JOY  (Psalm 98)

Tuesday 26th – COMPASSION  (Luke 15 verses 11 to 24)

Wed 27th - FORGIVENESS  (Matthew 18 verses 21 to 35)

Thur 28th – HEALING  (Revelation 21 verses 3 & 4  and chapter 22 verses 1 to 5)

Fri 29th – HOPE  (Titus 3 verses 3 to 8 & Romans 15 v. 13)

Saturday 30th - PEACE  (Philippians 4 verses 6 & 7)

Pentecost Sunday – LOVE (John 13 verses 34 & 35; also 1st letter of John 4 verses 8 to 11 & 1 Corinthians 13)

 

So, what's actually happening?!?

Online Daily Prayer

Over the Deanery and Diocese we can offer the following to connect with:

Mulbarton Church

You can join in with Morning Prayer 9:15am-9:45am Monday to Thursday. Bring a coffee. Opportunity to connect, discuss a Bible passage and say some prayers, for half an hour each day of the week. Zoom Meeting ID: 878 150 264

Hethersett Church

Most Weekdays at 1030 a Short act of Morning Prayer can be found at: https://www.facebook.com/hethersettchurch

Hingham and High Oak

Midday Prayer at 12 noon each day can be found on https://www.facebook.com/High-Oak-Hingham-429396720821739

 

Diocesan Compline

Compline will be held every evening starting on Thursday 21 May (Ascension Day) until (and including) Saturday 30 May.

Zoom meeting link: https://zoom.us/j/95501245043?pwd=eHpDOGpiTmY4TmRYME1Tb21pM0VWQT09

Liturgy can be found here: https://www.dioceseofnorwich.org/app/uploads/2020/05/Compline-The-Kingdom-Come-2020.pdf

 

Humbleyard Deanery Day of Prayer:

As a deanery we are asking people to sign up to slots to pray.  We are concentrating this on the 12 hours between 9am and 9pm on the day before Pentecost, Sat 30 May, as we aim to wait with the disciples.  You can pray however you would like to – that might be doing a prayer walk around your area, opening up the Pentecost Story and asking God to work like that once more, sitting in silence, colouring, drawing, listening to music…however you pray – pray. 

To encourage us all, Graham in Cringleford has kindly put up a sign up sheet to try to make sure we can cover all 12 hours – more than one person can sign up for each slot!  The link is: https://www.24-7prayer.com/signup/7da813

We are then inviting people to join in with the Diocesan Compline at 9pm (see above) whenever their slot was or even if they didn’t have a slot!

 

Prayer and Reflection Resources

Susanna Gunner, the Diocese Director for Prayer and Spirituality is producing daily reflections for this period to guide us through and encourage us to pray.  These can be found here:

https://www.dioceseofnorwich.org/resource/ascension-to-pentecost-reflections

Cringleford Church plan to post some short interactive prayers suitable for all ages on https://www.facebook.com/STPsCringleford - these will be put up at various times during the week.

There is also a very good app which not only includes a daily Podcast by former Bishop of Durham Tom Wright but also a Family Podcast to help all the family pray.  Search for ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ on your devices App Store.  It also has daily prayers on it.

 

Something for the Younger Ones (Or young at heart!)

Finally there is an interactive map and VR game for mobile devices available!  This is really fun (especially enjoyable is the sheep game) but also great at helping to get people thinking about prayer.  You need to print the map off from https://www.thykingdomcome.global/resources/digital-family-prayer-adventure-map (where there is also instructions!) and download the app by searching ‘TKC MAP AR’ in your app store.

Emotionally Healthy Spirituality Course

4 years ago

 
Emotionally Healthy Spirituality Course

We began with an introductory session on Tuesday 21st April, with the course starting properly this week, 28th April.  Course books are required for the 28th, but not for the introductory session.

The first session tackles the topic of "The problem of emotional unhealthy spirituality".

This course is a safe and simple way to practice slowing down to be with Jesus, and to look underneath the surface of what is going on in our lives.  There is no pressure to participate in any way that would be uncomfortable - it is very much the sort of thing that you will get out what you put in, and you can engage with it on whatever level fits where you are.  The course draws from significant age-old streams of Christian thinking and insight, and offers practical insights into how we can apply that thinking to deepen our own devotional lives.

The Paperback Book on Amazon

The Course Workbook on Amazon

The 40-Day Devotional on Amazon (or for a cheaper solution, the Kindle edition of the 40-day devotional on Amazon)

Or feel free to search other book-sellers, including the Christian Eden website.

I invited people in leadership positions throughout the benefice to work through this course with me in Autumn 2019.  Seventeen people from our group of churches participated in the 8-week course.  From the feedback given, here are some of the things they found helpful:

  • Good fellowship and good company - great way to connect with others
  • Helpful group "rules" that made for a truly safe space to explore the nitty-gritty of our lives (but no compulsion) and to deepen understanding of how to walk with Jesus
  • A range of learning materials to embed and reinforce the teaching
  • Genuinely helpful input on Sabbath and daily offices
  • Forty days of devotionals that gave achievable, balanced, rich times of waiting on God in 10-minute chunks
  • Guilt-free rhythms of praying
  • Help to be intentional and embrace the commitment needed to deepen a walk with God
  • Searching material, helping both to understand oneself better and to develop better devotional habits and emotional health
  • Greater peace and freedom that has lasted

Here's what one participant had to say: "I found the course very helpful in establishing a good, flexible 'routine' of quality time with God on my own, along with a mindfulness of God during my days - feeling generally closer and connected.  The EHS book, Day by Day readings and workbook were all helpful, along with the discussion times and DVD.  In the meetings I found it helpful to hear about other peoples' experiences and felt comfortable to share my own, but never felt pressured or pushed to share more than I wanted to.  I even felt free not to share at all.  I had been concerned that I might feel 'exposed' in a group setting, especially as I didn't know some of the group members very well.  I can imagine that, using the suggested format, along with the 'rules', I would be able to join any group of people without feeling at all 'threatened'. I would say to anyone contemplating doing the course to think of it as an opportunity.  It's a wonderful opportunity to discover things about ourselves - negative and positive.  I feel less anxious, fearful and more peaceful than before and I'm really pleased I took the opportunity myself."

If this is something you would like to join in with or find out more about, please do get in touch with me.  If you would like to commit to this course (and I hope many will), please order your books directly, using the links above - or if finances are an issue, please let me know.  Bursaries are available.

The course author explains what it's about here, and what resources you'll need.  Order details are above for ordering directly.

Tenebrae

4 years ago

 
Tenebrae

The word "tenebrae" comes from the Latin meaning "darkness" or "shadows". The Tenebrae is an ancient Christian Holy Week service that makes use of gradually diminishing light through the extinguishing of candles to symbolize the events of that week from the triumphant Palm Sunday entry through Jesus' burial.

This increasing darkness symbolizes the approaching darkness of Jesus' death and of hopelessness in the world without God. The service concludes in darkness, with a final candle, representing Christ, carried out of the church, symbolizing the death of Jesus.

It is a simple service, with 7 candles, 8 readings, some music and some silence.  A loud noise may also sound symbolizing the closing of Jesus' tomb. The worshipers then leave in silence to ponder the events of Holy Week, the impact of Christ's death and the expectation of the coming Resurrection.

Quiet Time with God

5 years ago

 
Quiet Time with God

Some of us thrive on stillness and silence in solitude;   for others the companionable quiet of a meditation group may be more helpful.  This newly formed group is an opportunity to explore together, in quietness and simplicity, how we can experience and respond to God as a part of our spiritual journey.

We will be meeting fortnightly from Wednesday 6 November at 7.30 pm for 45 minutes at Hethel Church.

During this time we will have an opening prayer, followed by a short Bible reading.  There will then be a period of approximately 20 minutes Quiet Time with God, which may take the form of silent prayer, meditation or simply sitting in quiet reflection in God’s presence.

Flordon Film Night: Fisherman's Friend

Flordon Film Night: Fisherman's Friend

A great film to ease us into the Christmas spirit; helped along by loads of mince pies, sausage rolls and mulled wine!

Doors open 7pm.  Film starts approx. 7:45pm

FISHERMAN'S FRIEND (2019) Drama 12A 112 minutes

Directed by Chris Foggin. With Daniel Mays, Tuppence Middleton

Ten fishermen from Cornwall achieve a Top 10 hit after they are signed by Universal Records for their canny talent of being able to sing a sea shanty or two.  Whilst there is definite appeal to coastal venues with strong fishing links, Fisherman’s Friends taps into the sense of close-knit communities, middle-age male obsolescence and the commitment of keeping traditions alive.

One to keep audiences swinging and swaying along in the aisles.

Tickets are now on sale, Just £5. Book now and pay on the door

Membership subscriptions are due…still only £5 per person per year

New members are always welcome. Please come along and enjoy pre-Christmas special treats!

Quiet Time with God

Some of us thrive on stillness and silence in solitude;   for others the companionable quiet of a meditation group may be more helpful.  This newly formed group is an opportunity to explore together, in quietness and simplicity, how we can experience and respond to God as a part of our spiritual journey.

We will be meeting fortnightly from Wednesday 6 November at 7.30 pm for 45 minutes at Hethel Church.

God and Money - Rev Edward Carter

5 years ago

 
God and Money - Rev Edward Carter

The Church of England invests billions of pounds and, guess what, these are concerns that are shared by pension fund managers.

In the CofE's case, there has been some public concern about energy companies that continue to extract fossil fuels with no investment in renewables. To divest or not to divest, that is the question. The current position is not to divest, and use shareholder pressure to bring about change.

This coming Saturday, 19th October, Edward Carter, vicar of St Peter Mancroft, is coming to converse with us about God and Money. I say 'converse' rather than 'speak' because I know that Edward wants to make it more of a dialogue than a lecture.

Edward is a Trustee of the Church of England’s CBF Funds (which has around £2bn of church money under investment!).  He also serves on the Ethical Investment Advisory Group of the Church of England. He will help us learn more about the church and its money, and help us with the whole concept of investing our own wealth for the benefit of others as well as ourselves.

Wine and nibbles in the interval before time for lots of Q's.

£5 contribution if you can manage it, shared between the Mancroft Advice Project and Hethel Church's sound reinforcement fund.

Spirituality, Community and Reconciliation

Saturday Evening Event

Brother Roger, founder of the community in 1940, said “God is love alone” and this is the heart of Taizé. Rachel Burchell will lead us in an evening to learn a bit more about the community, its work and what it means to visit. We'll learn one or two songs, have a drink and a nibble before we worship together, experiencing this love in peace, space, silence and music.
This event is for all four of our churches, together with those on the fringes who have an interest in 'spirituality'. Do come.

What is Taize?

The Taizé Community in central France is an ecumenical Christian monastic fraternity of more than one hundred multi-national brothers from a variety of traditions.  Taizé has become one of the world's most important sites of Christian pilgrimage, with a focus on youth. Over 100,000 young people from around the world make pilgrimages each year for prayer, Bible study, sharing, and communal work. Through the community's ecumenical outlook, they are encouraged to live in the spirit of kindness, simplicity and reconciliation.

Film, God and Everyday Life with Elaine Storkey

Film, God and Everyday Life with Elaine Storkey

Film, God and Everyday Life

In All Saints Church, Hethel (NR14 8HE) on Saturday 8 June (7.30pm), Dr Elaine Storkey will speak about Film, God and Everyday Life. Film is more than a medium of entertainment. Many films ask – and often answer – deep questions about human significance, the meaning of reality and the existence of God. This talk, illustrated with film clips, looks at some of these questions and identifies recurring moral and spiritual  themes in our lives today.

Elaine Storkey has many years’ experience of teaching in British universities and overseas in the fields of social science, philosophy and theology. A warm, engaging and popular speaker, Elaine has written and presented a large number of radio and television documentaries and has contributed regularly to (for example) Thought for the Day and Woman's Hour. She was President of the international relief and development organisation Tear Fund and is on numerous boards, councils and working parties which address the interface of culture and Christianity. A prominent writer on feminism from a Christian perspective, her latest book, Scars Across Humanity addresses the global incidence of violence against women. She is very involved with the International Christian Alliance on Prostitution.

As usual at 'Hethel Specials', wine and nibbles will be available in an interval before Q and A. If you are willing and able, you can contribute £7.50 to be shared between the church's development fund and a charity chosen by Dr Storkey. Tickets from Peter Nicholls (01508 570557 / hethel@allbelievers.org) or, if still available, on the door. More info at www.acny.org.uk/hethel.

This event is part of Hethel Church's 'Summer of Spirituality', for all who have an interest in spirituality. Do come to this rare opportunity to hear a top-class speaker on an interesting, important and unusual topic.

Flordon Film Night: King of Thieves

This month we are showing...

 KING OF THIEVES (2018) Drama PG 108 minutes

Not to be confused with last season’s The Hatton Garden Job, but covering the same ground, King of Thieves is the incredible true story of the spectacular Hatton Garden diamond heist, the biggest and most daring in British history, humorously told through career best performances from a stellar cast which includes Sir Michael Caine, Jim Broadbent, Ray Winstone, Michael Gambon, Tom Courtenay and Charlie Cox.

“Michael Caine gives one of his best performances in years as the pensive, recently widowed mastermind Brian Reader, resolutely adhering to the notion of honour among thieves, while Paul Whitehouse and Michael Gambon provide perfectly judged comic relief. But most striking of all is Jim Broadbent, whose cuddly, avuncular exterior gives way to a figure of genuine menace.” - Radio Times

Tenebrae

5 years ago

 
Tenebrae

The word "tenebrae" comes from the Latin meaning "darkness" or "shadows". The Tenebrae is an ancient Christian Holy Week service that makes use of gradually diminishing light through the extinguishing of candles to symbolize the events of that week from the triumphant Palm Sunday entry through Jesus' burial.

This increasing darkness symbolizes the approaching darkness of Jesus' death and of hopelessness in the world without God. The service concludes in darkness, with a final candle, representing Christ, carried out of the church, symbolizing the death of Jesus.

It is a simple service, with 6 candles, 8 readings, some music and some silence.  A loud noise may also sound symbolizing the closing of Jesus' tomb. The worshipers then leave in silence to ponder the events of Holy Week, the impact of Christ's death and the expectation of the coming Resurrection.

Flordon Film Night: PETERLOO

Flordon Film Night: PETERLOO

Doors open 7pm, Film starts approx. 7:45pm.

PETERLOO (2018) Drama/History PG 154 minutes

Mike Leigh’s portrayal of the events surrounding the infamous 1819 Peterloo Massacre. Government forces charged into a crowd of over 60,000 people who had gathered in a peaceful protest against rising levels of poverty and to demand political reform. Many protesters were killed and hundreds more injured, sparking a nationwide outcry but also further government suppression. The Peterloo Massacre was a defining moment in British democracy which also played a significant role in the founding of The Guardian newspaper. Starring Maxine Peake and Rory Kinnear.

“Leigh’s achievement is to have made a period film with the same immediacy and sense of anger that runs through contemporary dramas like Hillsborough or Bloody Sunday. He has a huge ensemble cast but that exhaustive attention to detail and fascination with the eccentricities of human behaviour which has always characterised his work is still there.” The Independent

New members are always welcome.  Please come along, enjoy a glass of wine and meet your fellow film buffs!

Flordon Film Night: The Bookshop, with mulled wine and minced pies

This month we are showing...

THE BOOKSHOP (2017) Drama PG 113 minutes

It is 1959, and widowed Florence Green (Emily Mortimer) risks everything to open up a bookshop in the sleepy seaside town of Hardborough. When she exposes the narrow minded townsfolk to the best literature of the day including Nabokov's scandalizing "Lolita" and Ray Bradbury's "Fahrenheit 451", she gains a kindred spirit and ally in the figure of Mr Brundish (Bill Nighy), who is himself sick of the town's stale atmosphere, but has to reckon with the hostility of the other shopkeepers and of self-appointed doyenne Mrs Gamart (Patricia Clarkson).

Please come early for mulled wine, sausage rolls and minced pies!

New members are always welcome.  Subscriptions for 2019 are now due please.

Call or email David to book your tickets.

Remembrance Service

Remembrance Service

This special Remembrance Sunday, 100 years on from the end of WW1, we gather at Mulbarton Church, to remember all those who lost their lives or who were wounded and traumatised by their experience of war.

We remember especially the men from Mulbarton who have served their country in times past.  Just over a hundred years ago, 90 men from Mulbarton went to fight in WWI, and 17 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.

After the service in church, which will conclude with a 2-minute silence at 11am, we'll walk to the Village Hall, where specially prepared displays and refreshments will be available.  Thanks to the Parish Council, the scouts and guides, and various other village organisations who have worked hard to make this a fitting village occasion.

We do hope to see you there.

Diocesan Bishop Vacancy - Public Meeting

6 years ago

 
Diocesan Bishop Vacancy - Public Meeting

There are now specific dates we can pray for and the process has become clear! The initial large membership of the Vacancy in See Committee will be reduced to six on October 16th who go forward to work with the national nomination committee, The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Prime Minister’s Office and the Queen’s staff. The six are elected from those already on the Committee. Please pray for clear leading and discernment and that the right people for Norfolk are chosen.

The full committee meets in Norfolk on 28th August, 2nd October and 16th October.

There is a PUBLIC MEETING Consultation to be held for all Norfolk people on 3rd October 7.30 pm at the Cathedral.  Please do come to make your voice heard, and please do pray.

We are asked to think about the kind of person we want but also what we want candidates to know about Norfolk.

You can also make your views known directly online, by following this link to the diocesan "Vacancy in See" page.  People can commit their thoughts on line directly to the Secretary of the Committee. They can also contact any of the members which are listed on the same web page.

We are also asked to pray this prayer whenever we can, to cover the whole process in God’s blessing. It may take some time as there are a  number of Bishoprics in vacancy at present. Please pray for the staff who will have to cover the work in Bishop Graham’s absence after February 2019.

Bishop Alan writes this about the vacancy and the process, and offers us a prayer to use...

What is a Bishop (Feel free to edit as appropriate)

1.Every bishop is the chief pastor of all that are within his diocese, laity as well as clergy, and their father in God; it appertains to his office to teach and to uphold sound and wholesome doctrine, and to banish and drive away all erroneous and strange opinions; and, himself an example of righteous and godly living, it is his duty to set forward and maintain quietness, love, and peace among all men.

2. Every bishop has within his diocese jurisdiction as Ordinary except in places and over persons exempt by law and custom.

3. Every bishop is, within his diocese, the principal minister, and to him belongs the right, save in places and over persons exempt by law or custom, of celebrating the rites of ordination and confirmation; of conducting, ordering, controlling, and authorising all services in churches, chapels, churchyards and consecrated burial grounds; ... of being president of his diocesan synod.

Ministry in the wider Church and Nation

The role of bishops is not confined to their own dioceses. As the statement at ordination services makes clear, the ‘special responsibility to maintain and further the unity of the Church, to uphold its discipline, and to guard its faith’ is one which bishops share with their fellow bishops, and they are to promote the mission of the Church ‘throughout the world’. They are members of the College of Bishops at the provincial and national levels and attend the Lambeth Conference of all the bishops in the Anglican Communion.

All diocesan bishops are members of the House of Bishops of the General Synod and therefore share in responsibility for the leadership of the Church of England nationally and for relationships between the Church of England and the Church in other countries. Beyond their formal synodical role, diocesan bishops tend to be the public face of the Church in the eyes of the media and therefore perform an important communications role. Most diocesan bishops carry particular national responsibilities, chairing committees or boards within the National Church Institutions, ecumenically, or in connection with religious charities.

The Archbishops of Canterbury and York and the Bishop of London are privy counsellors. They are also members of the House of Lords, as are the Bishops of Durham and Winchester and twenty-one of the other diocesan bishops in England, Bishops may also be invited to contribute their experience or expertise to the deliberations of national government or regional bodies on particular issues. Diocesan bishops will thus also be called upon sooner or later to play a leading part in national life and to represent not just their dioceses but also their regions at the national level.

It is important that all who are involved in the process for choosing diocesan bishops bear in mind not just the role of diocesan bishops in their own dioceses, but also the ministry which they are called upon to exercise nationally and, in many cases, internationally as well

Eternal God, our shepherd and guide,

in your mercy give your Church in this Diocese

a shepherd after your own heart

who will walk in your ways,

and with loving care watch over your people.

Give us a leader of vision and a teacher of truth.

So may your Church grow and be built up,

and by your grace accomplish more than we can imagine,

for the glory of your name,

through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

Mulbarton Church Open Day

6 years ago

 
Mulbarton Church Open Day

We've listened to feedback from last year's inaugural Open Day, and this year we're planning something even better! We’ll showcase some of what we do, as well as providing some interesting and fun things for visitors of all ages to engage with.  What a line-up!

World War 1 Exhibition
Of special interest this year is 100 years since the end of World War 1, so we'll have some fascinating material on loan from the archive office about that, as well as stories of the 90 men from Mulbarton who served in the Great War.

Harvest House Anniversary
It's 25 years since the church bought Harvest House and 20 years since it was officially opened, so there'll be something of that story to discover, if you've ever wondered how Harvest House fits in. Refreshments and cake served throughout the day in Harvest House!

Toddle for the Font!
We're hoping some local youngsters will get sponsorship to help towards the cost of the Font.  They'll receive a sticker for every lap they complete of the special course in Harvest House, as well as a certificate to say they helped save the font - sponsorship forms available here.

Brave Teddy Bear Parachutes
This year every teddy bear who braves a flight from the tower with parachute will receive a prize and certificate of bravery!  Just bring your teddy bear and parachute along, and we'll hoist them up ready to launch at 12noon.  If you haven't got a parachute, just bring your teddy, and they'll get a ride down from the tower together in the basket with the big parachute!

Teddy Bear Picnic, with family games and crafts
The teddy bears can then travel to Harvest House for a burger or hotdog from our stall there.  At Harvest House there will be family games and Messy Church style crafts - so plenty to occupy little ones.  There'll also be a special church trail for youngsters back at the church.

Bell Ringing
We're really looking forward to hearing the performances throughout the day: the Shelfanger handbell ringers will be performing at the start of the day, to inspire us with our own set of handbells.  There will also be a chance for you to have a go at ringing our big tower bells.

Musical Performances
The ever popular Community Choir and School Choir will perform after lunch.  We'll also have live music through the day on organ, piano and guitar in both church and harvest House.

Flower Festival
Another big highlight will be the flower festival.  We have an incredibly talented group of flower arrangers, who will transform the church with delightful floral displays.  Truly not to be missed.

Please do book the date!  We'd love to see you!

BREATHE 115 mins 12A Drama/Biography/Romance
This month we are showing BREATHE. When Robin (Andrew Garfield) is struck down by polio at the age of 28, he is confined to a hospital bed and given only a few months to live. With the help of his wife's twin brothers (Tom Hollander) and the ground-breaking ideas of inventor Teddy Hall (Hugh Bonneville), Robin and Diana (Claire Foy) dare to escape the hospital ward to seek out a full and passionate life together - raising their young son, traveling and devoting their lives to helping other polio patients.

“Part exuberant love story, part great escape adventure, this is an old-fashioned tale of triumph over adversity that refuses – like its protagonists – to succumb to confinement. I honestly can’t remember the last time I laughed and cried so much at the same movie.”
Mark Kermode

The club will only exist if you want it to and keep supporting it. So please keep coming, enjoy a glass of
wine and meet your fellow film critics!

He is passionate about seeing people realise their identity as Children of God and to grow in Him. Jamie writes:

"My hearts desire is to see the kingdom of God manifest in every area of society. For me this starts in my own home where I father my four children. I have seen God perform many miracles with my children including healing my youngest son of a number of serious medical conditions including brain damage and epilepsy. I am so excited to be with you and to share what the Lord has laid on my heart for you."

Tenebrae: Service of Shadows

6 years ago

 
Tenebrae: Service of Shadows

The word "tenebrae" comes from the Latin meaning "darkness" or "shadows". The Tenebrae is an ancient Christian Holy Week service that makes use of gradually diminishing light through the extinguishing of candles to symbolize the events of that week from the triumphant Palm Sunday entry through Jesus' burial.

This increasing darkness symbolizes the approaching darkness of Jesus' death and of hopelessness in the world without God. The service concludes in darkness, with a final candle, representing Christ, carried out of the church, symbolizing the death of Jesus.

It is a simple service, with 6 candles, 8 readings, some music and some silence.  A loud noise may also sound symbolizing the closing of Jesus' tomb.

The worshipers then leave in silence to ponder the events of Holy Week, the impact of Christ's death and the expectation of the coming Resurrection.

Join them for a trip down memory lane . They will bring back a time

years to a time when we ‘never had it so good’

On Tuesday 6 March at 7.30pm in Hethel Church, Karen O’Kane - Programme Director, Better Broadband for Norfolk - will talk about the Universal Service Obligation (you request, BT must deliver, 10Mbps). What does it mean? When will it happen? What are the get-out clauses? Should you wait, or opt for a wireless solution now? There will also be a couple of wireless providers present to talk about 20Mbps or faster via 4G – even when you’ve got no bars on your phone.

Refreshments are available.

Tickets are now on sale. Just £5. Book now and pay on the door.


MY COUSIN RACHEL 106 mins 12A Drama/Mystery/Romance
From the 1951 novel by Daphne du Maurier. A young Englishman (Sam Claflin – Their Finest) plots revenge against his late cousin's mysterious, beautiful widow (Rachel Weisz), believing her responsible for his death. But his feelings become complicated as he finds himself falling under the beguiling spell of her charms.

This one should do very well for us – Gothic melodrama and wonderful Cornish scenery.

“My Cousin Rachel is a highly enjoyable mystery thriller of the sort that modern communication and the internet have made impossible to set in the present day. Adapted and directed by Roger Michell, it is a fantastically preposterous psychological drama featuring a lush score from Rael Jones and a tremendous lead performance from Rachel Weisz – who is mean, minxy and manipulative. Her sheer charisma persuades you to overlook one or two plot glitches. I can only describe this film as the roistering missing link between The Talented Mr Ripley and Far from the Madding Crowd.”
Peter Bradshaw in The Guardian

The club will only exist if you want it to and keep supporting it. So please keep coming, enjoy a glass of
wine and meet your fellow film critics!

friendship between Queen Victoria (Judi Dench) and a young Indian clerk Abdul Karim (Ali Fazal).

Tickets are now on sale. Just £5. Book now and pay on the door.

This is the first film of the new season so that also means…membership subscriptions are due…still just £5 per
person for the year.

VICTORIA AND ABDUL 110 mins PG Biography/Drama/History
“There’s both pointed mischief and genuine emotion in abundance as this fascinating
true story emerges from the shadows of history. To portray Queen Victoria as a
pioneering multiculturalist perhaps errs on the side of generosity, yet it’s surprising how
much still rings true in this fable about Britain’s intoxication with the idea of India… as
long as the more troubling reality remains safely at arm’s length.” Radio Times

Hidden Figures

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?

7 years 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

7 years 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.
