‘Walking in New Testament Sandals’
Saturday 24th September 2022
Rev Dr Sue Woan, who used to lead the Norwich Diocesan Ministry Course, is inviting people to step into New Testaments sandals for day retreat at
All Saints Church Mattishall.
Through interactive presentations, you will discover how geography, politics, festivals and the individual perspectives of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John have resulted in four gospels. The days will be a fun day of exploration and new insights and includes a unique visit to ‘Churches Together in Rome’ and a personal encounter with St. Paul. No previous knowledge of the New Testament is required, but please bring a Bible if you can (we will have some available to borrow as well). Sandals are optional.
This day is free, though any donations would be welcome. Please bring your own lunch, while drinks will be provided for you throughout the day. A bookstall of useful resources for study will be available.
Tickets for this session can be obtained from https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/walking-in-new-testament or by contacting Alan Cossey at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 01362 857904 for more details.
As well as lots of events to enjoy there is always the opportunity to serve as well. If you can spare some time to help bake a cake or run a stall at a coffee morning, help with family events or children’s groups on a Sunday. Read the Bible or lead intercessions in church services (help and training is available.) Help to keep our church buildings clean and churchyards tidy or have any other skills you would like to use in the service of God and for the benefit of the community please do have a word with a member of the staff team or a church warden. They would be delighted to hear from you!
There will be various Harvest services happening around the Benefice in September and October keep a look out for dates on the website and in churches and invite your friends and neighbours to celebrate God’s goodness to us.
With every blessing
