Christians gather at Fishley for Easter sunrise 

2016: On Easter Sunday morning about 30 members of Acle Churches Together assembled for their traditional annual Sunrise Service St Mary's Church, Fishley.

Prayers and hymns were led by Rev Martin Greenland, Rev Steve Cullis, Rev Canon Nicholas Garrard and Rev Helen Garrard from around 6am.

The congregation then processed outside to the grounds of this Saxon church to partake in communion.

Finally everybody accepted a kind invitation from Steve Cullis to enjoy breakfast at the Methodist church hall.

John Kenny said: “It was gratifying to see such a  sizeable cross-section of faiths (including Catholics, Methodists and Anglicans) demonstrating the ideals of ecumenism despite the inclement weather and the fact that the event coincided with the clocks being advanced by one hour.”
