Queen's Hills Vicar

Rev. Laura is being commissioned as the "Vicar" of the Queen's Hills Estate at the Queen's Hill Primary School Community carol event on the 17 December 2019. The carol singing will begin at the school at 4.30pm and the Bishop of Lynn will be present to conduct the commissioning. All are welcome to attend.

Rev. Laura moves to Queens Hills Oct 2019

 'After just under four years of living in beautiful Marlingford, we are moving to the Queen's Hills estate, which although part of Costessey Civil Parish is actually a part of Easton ecclesiastical Parish. There is no Church building there, but there is double the amount of people living on just that estate than in the rest of the Benefice put together! So, we are moving there to try to be a more visible presence on the estate and to try to begin some new forms of worship and ministry. At the moment I have no idea what these new forms of worship and ministry will take - so it is exciting and terrifying in equal measure!

In the short term not much will change as a result of this in the rest of the Benefice. Our service pattern remains the same and Rev. Penny Goodman will still be serving in our Benefice. I would ask for your prayers as we begin this new phase of ministry and mission within our Benefice and as my family find our feet in a new environment, unpack and get settled'.

Rev. Laura and Rev. Penny join forces

In October 2018, we welcomed Rev. Laura  (left) back as Rector of the Easton Benefice, following her leave of absence of a year, having adopted her second son, Noah. Rev.Penny (right) will continue to support her in this role for the foreseeable future.  We are grateful to Rev. Penny for covering Rev. Laura's absence and for all the hard work she has done in the Benefice during that time.  Rev. Laura can be contacted by email at . On the 21 May 2019, Rev Penny was licenced to the Easton Benefice by the Bishop of Lynn.

Help in tidying the Churchyard

Some of you may not be aware that Bawburgh Church has a volunteer mowing team who give up a couple of hours every six weeks to mow and strim certain parts of the church grounds.

We would greatly welcome any extra help with these tasks. We will be notifying you through Bawburgh News as to the days when these tasks take place during the course of 2020. If you would like to help just turn up on the allocated days bringing tools, such as rakes, wheelbarrows and gloves to wear.

Please contact Symon Gaughan if you feel you are able to lend a hand, or wish to know more.
