Church Advent opportunity from Bramerton pub 

WatersEdgeRestaurantDuring Advent a restaurant in Bramerton is looking for churches to set a festive atmosphere by providing carols and testimonies.  

From December 1 Lee Webb, the Proprietor of the Water’s Edge restaurant situated on the bank of the River Yare in the South Norfolk village of Bramerton, is erecting a floodlit Christmas tree. 

To bring a real sense of Christmas Lee is giving churches the opportunity to book a night during Advent to bring carol singers, testimonies and music.

The invitation was offered via well-known Norfolk evangelist, John Wright.  John said: “This is a great Christmas evangelistic opportunity. Can I ask all churches to pray for this outreach and for God to bless Water's Edge for giving us this great opportunity.”

John, a Member of the College of Evangelists, suggests that churches may like to use the outreach opportunity to give out a copy of The Christmas Story leaflet that he has written and distributes with the approval of the Bishop of Norwich.  Churches can print their own (see below) or order copies from John for free (or give a suggested donation of of 15p each).

If singers would like to eat at the Water’s Edge, which is just five miles from Norwich, Lee would like to offer a reduction on fish and chips from £12.95 to £10.

Churches wishing to book an evening slot should contact Lee or Charlotte, from the Water’s Edge, on 01508 538005 or on

If you would like to order printed copies of The Christmas Story leaflet, or have any queries or problems please contact John Wright on 01508 494366 or
