God with Us: Your Christmas Journey seeks to help you explore what the Christmas story might mean in your life. There are a total of 13 short reflections. One for each of the four weeks before Christmas - the season of Advent. Then one for each day from Christmas Eve to New Year's Day.

Situated in the heart of the beautiful county of Norfolk, the villages of the Heart of Norfolk Group (benefice) form part of the Sparham Deanery in the Diocese of Norwich. We worship God and support our community within the framework of the Church of England.
The Heart of Norfolk Group of churches – 13 parishes – has now been working together for a year. Initially, we tried hard to sustain the pattern of services that each parish had been enjoying. However, over time, it became obvious that this was not sustainable and, in many places, services were attracting small congregations, which makes it very hard to create a vibrant experience of worship and fellowship.
Beginning in January, we are streamlining our service pattern and encouraging congregations to unite and worship together. For some parishes, that will mean a reduction in the number of services held each month. The new pattern does ensure that at least three services of Holy Communion are held across the Team each Sunday and provides a variety of Services of the Word in both traditional and modern language.
We are also encouraging people to car-share and offer lifts to those who do not drive. If transport is an issue for you, please be in touch on 01362 668850.
