Spring Harvest Local

4 days to go

Fiona, the family and I will be going again to the Spring Harvest Christian festival at the Harrogate Conference Centre from the 14th to the 18th April 2020. We had a great time two years ago, with inspiring teaching, great worship and the opportunity to have afternoon tea at Betty’s Tea Rooms. Over the years we have been to Spring Harvest and other similar events to be refreshed and renewed in our Christian faith and are looking forward to going next year. You can find out more at www.springharvest.org/harrogate.

Because we are previous attenders, we received a special low cost of £99 per adult (children are less), an offer which is still open until the end of September if we take others with us, although you will need to book accommodation separately.

If you are unsure whether this is for you, then Spring Harvest is coming to Norwich for one night only on 24th September 7:30pm at Sprowston Methodist Church, where you can have a taster of what is in store for 2020. The worship leader is Pete James, who led the worship at Harrogate two years ago and he was amazing. The cost is £8 pp or £6 pp for concessions. We can’t book these tickets for you, so you will need to go to www.springharvest.org/local. If you don’t have a computer then we can help at the office.

Please talk to Fiona or me if you would like to know more.

Baptism and Confirmations

3 months to go

Leaders: Bishop Jonathan

On December 8th we will be welcoming Bishop Jonathan, the Bishop of Lynn to All Saints Mattishall at 10:30 for a service of Baptism and Confirmation. Both Baptism and Confirmation are acts that signify steps along the journey of faith. Baptism is the sign of our commitment to the Christian faith – the step when we go from ‘knowing about Jesus’ to ‘knowing Jesus personally’. The Bible tells us that in baptism we are united with Jesus in his death and resurrection and that the water of baptism symbolises the washing away of our sins on the Cross. It is a symbol of our relationship with God as Father and the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Whenever it happens, whether as a baby, child or adult, baptism is at the heart of an amazing journey of faith as a follower of Jesus Christ. You are never too old to take this step and being baptized as an adult is a wonderful experience. Confirmation means different things to different people. For those who were baptised as babies or small children, confirmation is the opportunity to publicly affirm that their faith is no longer that of their godparents or parents, but now their own. For others, it an expression of belonging, either having moved from another part of the worldwide Christian church and having made a commitment to one of the churches of our benefice, or it can express a sense of belonging not just to the local church, but also to the worldwide body of Christ. That’s why confirmation involves the Bishop, as his ministry expresses our connection as a small fragment of the body of Christ with the whole. As a benefice, we have a number of candidates for baptism and confirmation. Please pray for them and those preparing them as they look forward to this important moment in their Christian lives. But what about you? Have you yet to be baptised and/or confirmed? Is it a step that you feel drawn to? If so, please email me so we can talk it over (email address on Contacts page). Mark
