Norfolk Churches Bike Ride

The Norfolk Churches Trust are organising a bike ride on Saturday 10th September. This sponsored ride around the beautiful churches of Norfolk enables you to support your local church as well as explore other magnificent Norfolk churches.
Last year's bike ride turned out to be another fantastic year, with the event raising a staggering £130,156 for Norfolk Churches. 711 gallant people took to their walking or running shoes, braved the sea and used transport that included boats, horses, tandems, mobility scooters, cars and buses. The event has now raised more than £4 million for Norfolk Churches since its inception in 1983!
Have fun, take excercise, and raise money for Norfolk's wonderful churches, including your own.

Retirement of Revd. Penny

Our Assistant Priest, Revd. Penny, retired at Easter.  In her own words:

'Easter Day will see my last Service in the Easton Benefice. I thought I was coming for one year and ended up staying for four and a half years during which time I have felt very much part of the community. I go thankful for my time spent amongst you and all the times that we have spent together and wish you well for the future. God Bless'.

Revd. Penny resided over the Easter Service at Marlingford Church.  She was given a heart felt thank you for her work in the Easton Benefice and her help in setting up the Benefice Prayer Group and  'Open the Book' at Easton School. Felicity Maton, churchwarden at Marlingford church, presented Revd. Penny with a bouquet of flowers at the end of the service (photo with thanks to Tony Perry).

  We in the Benefice are sad to see her go but are very grateful for all Revd Penny has brought to the Benefice during her time with us and we wish her every success in her new ventures.





St Walstan's Day 2022

St Walstan's Day 2022 took place at Bawburgh Church on the 29 May this year,and include the traditional pilgrimage to the well. We were fortunate to have Bishop Jane Steen, the Bishop of Lynn, residing over the service this year which started with Holy Communion  followed by the procession to St Walstan's Well for final prayers. This occasion was made even more special with the attendance of the Norwich and Norfolk Medieval Association (NANMA), in full medieval regalia. (Photo with thanks to Felicity Maton)

Following the service there was a light lunch served at the King's Head, Bawburgh.
