Norwich Diocese fills Carrow Road twice over 

This Christmas, hundreds of volunteers and clergy across the Diocese of Norwich will be wrapping over 8000 oranges in red ribbon and preparing for over 1000 festive services.

During December over 7,000 carols will be sung at services across the Diocese by enough church-goers to fill Carrow Road twice over.

Today, the Diocese of Norwich, which covers Norfolk and Waveney, has released a video highlighting some of the good work that is undertaken throughout the Christmas period by so many, often unseen.

From organising services to visiting those on their own this Christmas, the video emphasises some of the many things vicars, Readers, churchwardens, PCC members, youth workers and volunteers do to show the love of Christ and help spread the joy of the Christmas message. 

Communications Officer for the Diocese, Emma Craig, said: “It's astonishing when you think of the number of people and hours that are involved in our Christmas services.  We want to thank all those who give their time to help spread the Good News at Christmas, and hope that this video will help to share that Good News even further. We would encourage you to share the video on social media and by email.”

Do you appreciate our service and stories?

The Network Norwich & Norfolk website has been published for over 13 years now and we have an established team of professional journalists covering the activities, organisations and churches which make up the county’s Christian community. Our whole purpose is to support that community by daily providing accurate, unbiased stories and features.

To pay for that service, we rely on our partner organisations, advertisers and readers to, in turn, support us financially. We want to keep the website free for everyone to access and continue to be able to pay for writers to produce the content you can enjoy every day.

We would like to ask you to consider supporting our work and suggest you might want to make a small regular donation of just £1 a week and become one of our 100 Friends, or a larger one-off or annual amount.

Because we are part of a registered charity we can reclaim Gift Aid on your donations if you are a tax-payer.
