Thought for the month - October 2019

I’m sure you will agree what a wonderful summer we’ve had! It’s been a pleasure to be outside, gardening or just relaxing. The farmers have safely gathered in the harvest crops for which I am sure they are thankful.

We live in such a lovely county, I’m amazed at the beauty we have around us. Our God created such a fantastic world, we have so much to thank Him for.

I do hope we remember to thank Him for the good things we have and don’t just pray to Him with a list of requests.

He is always there for us and we can always talk to Him in prayer, He will hear us and He will answer us, it will be in His time and it may be a ‘yes’, it may be ‘no’ or it may be a ‘wait’. He always knows what is best for us.

Prayer isn’t difficult, you just need to talk to Him as you would your best friend. If you would like prayer for anything, or would like to pray with someone, do please contact somebody in any of our churches and they will be only too pleased to be with you, I am sure.

May we continue to appreciate the beauty around us and the different seasons we encounter.

And may we all feel God’s blessing with us at all times.

Thank you,

How To Find Us

If coming to the church from the Norwich direction, head west along the A47. As you approach Hockering, there is an angled turn off to Hockering itself. Ignore this and turn right into The Street only when you have passed Mill Lane on your left. Once on The Street, turn left and follow the road round to your right. You will see St. Michael's on your right. There is usually space to park on the side of this quiet road in front of the church itself.
If coming to the church from the Dereham direction, bear left onto an unnamed road which heads directly to the church. At this left turn you will see a white P on blue background (parking) sign) As you actually turn into the unnamed road heading to the church you can see St. Michael's in the distance.
