Welcome 9 Apr 20

Welcome to e-Bulletin this Maundy Thursday, as we journey with Christ through his Passion, towards his glorious Resurrection.

This bulletin includes: links to the prayer and worship pages on the Heart of Norfolk website/Facebook page, a link to Easter Sunday's gospel reading (Matthew 28:1-10) and a reflection from Revd Sally. 


Gathering together

Zoom: Further to last week’s e-bulletin, there have been very few in our HON community registering with Zoom that we know of. We’ll continue to experiment, as we may be a virtual community for some time to come.

It’s a learning experience, but if you would like me (Sally) to arrange 1-1 Zoom meetings, please call (01362 668850) or email me at heartofnorfolkrector@gmail.com.  Meanwhile, please see Holy Week and Easter (below) about resources for worship and prayer at home.
