Transitioning Ministry and Worship

Dear All,

I am pleased now to be able to share the plans for the transitioning for worship in the benefice.  We look forward to being able to gradually meet in fellowship together but appreciate for many this feels to soon and may do for a considerable time.

During April the online recorded worship through YouTube and will continue but then will be transitioned into an adapted form but still accessible online. Easter Sunday at 10am will be the first service in church as previously mentioned. On the 11th April also at 10am there will be one service of Holy Communion in St Nicholas at 10am.

The current guidance with regards singing in worship is tighter than at Christmas and unfortunately still means we are not able to participate in congregational singing. This means we are needing to adapt services so to be able to offer worship, we all hope this guidance changes soon. Please remember to book in and wear face masks for all services.

Looking Ahead

From Sunday 18th April will begin weekly, two distinct styles of worship. At 9:30am in the Dersingham Village Centre there will be a contemporary accessible worship with particular focus on welcoming children back into the worshipping community. This will be based with people sitting around round tables in ‘bubbles’. Also beginning weekly on the 18th April at 11am will be a traditional stream of worship with organ. On the 18th this will be Holy Communion in St Nicholas Church.

The week after on 25th April the 11am traditional worship will be Holy Communion from the Prayer Book at Anmer church and the contemporary worship will again be in the Village Centre in Dersingham starting at 9:30.
