Forthcoming Events

During this season of Lent (which runs from Ash Wednesday, 14th February, to Easter Sunday) we are holding a Lent study course.  It is being held on Wednesdays, in the morning at the Rectory and in the evenings at the home of Ron and Helen.  If you would llike to join us please contact Revd Janet (01263 768075) or Helen (01263 511132).  Rather than give something up for Lent, why not, as Revd Janet suggested recently, take something up to think about the deeper meaning of the events leading up to Easter?  One suggestion would be our Lent course.  If you cannot join us on a Wednesday, we can give you a copy of the booklet we shall be following so that you can follow it on your own. 


On Tuesday 13 March there will be a special open meeting in church at 1.30pm to discuss the arrangements that will need to be put in place to cover for Revd Janet after surgery to ameliorate the condition of her left ankle.  All are welcome to attend this meeting that will be chaired by Rev Christian Heycocks, our Rural Dean




We shall be celebrating Easter with the following events:

  • Maundy Thursday    Roughton  Village Hall    7.00 - 8.30pm   A simple passover meal followed by Holy Communion.

***   Location of this service has been changed because of the ground conditions and the progress of the building project.


After Easter 


On 9th June there will be a coffee morning at Sustead Hall in the morning. 


Also in June the benefice will be represented at the Norwich Diocese Leading your Church into Growth conference.  This should be a very exciting and challenging time.  If you want to know more, please contact either the Diocese of Revd Janet.


Looking into July, the Felbrigg Flower Festival will be held from Saturday 14th to Monday 16th.


Looking further ahead, the Rectory Garden Party will be held in the afternoon of Saturday 4th August.
