The Norfolk and Norwich Christian community website

See the church in action at the Royal Norfolk Show 

You can catch members of the Network Norfolk team at the Royal Norfolk Show over the next two days, thanks to a joint initiative between the Diocese of Norwich and Celebrate Norwich & Norfolk.

The website team will be joining a number of Christian organisations, charities and churches demonstrating the church in action at an enlarged joint Diocese of Norwich and Celebrate Norfolk marquee at the Show on June 29 and 30.

The stand is number 286 and can be found on avenues 8 & 9.

Exhibitors include:

  • YMCA Norfolk – celebrating their 160th anniversary opportunities to explore what the YMCA has been doing in Norfolk since 1856.
  • Norwich Cathedral – providing a space to find calm, reflect and unwind, the Cathedral will be offering free hand massages
  • Norwich Youth for Christ – enter a recording studio experience with a chance to win ‘Singer of the Day’!
  • Rafiki Creative Ministry – have a go on their interactive spin art paint machines
  • The Matthew Project – highlighting their work and opportunities available for people to be support and get involved
  • Mothers’ Union – pedal on their exercise bike to raise money for two special projects as they celebrate their 140th anniversary
  • Other exhibitors include: the Christian Conference Trust, Traidcraft, Rural Ministries, Revelation Bookshop, Norwich FGB, Network Norfolk, the Horstead Centre and Premier’s Christianity magazine.

Speaking about the vision, Gordon Darley, Marketing & Communications Manager for the Diocese of Norwich, said: “The Royal Norfolk Show is an amazing opportunity to highlight what God is doing across Norfolk through Christian organisations working together in local communities.  Through a vibrant, colourful and engaging presence we want to give just a taste of the love God has for all.”

At the centre of the marquee will be a large café area for those wanting refreshment or a place to stop and relax as well as a toddler and crèche area for parents.  They’ll also be a demonstration area where school choirs, gospel choirs and others will be performing.

In the cinema area, Billy Graham's ‘The Cross’ short film will be playing with free popcorn for visitors!  There are also interactive areas on prayer, music and the Bible, as well as a walkway journeying through a prayer space and forest church experience.
