Celebrate events show church in action across Norfolk
The work of the Christian church in action across Norfolk will be showcased at three linked events across the county in June in Norwich, King’s Lynn and at the Royal Norfolk Show.
Celebrate Norwich & Norfolk will return to The Forum and Millennium Plain in Norwich city centre on Saturday June 10 with a free exhibition of over 20 Christian organisations, charities and churches, including OMF, Norwich Foodbank, Community Action Norwich, Christian Aid, Mothers Union, Christian Police Association, House of Genesis, Heartbeat, Christians Against Poverty, Pathway Café and the Leprosy Mission.
There will also be a Leaders’ Breakfast, a professional theatre production of Soul in the Machine, a combined churches choir, a children’s and youth programme from Norwich Youth For Christ and free food courtesy of the Norfolk Feeds 5000 campaign, in conjunction with ENYP and Hope into Action.
Celebrate will also take place in King's Lynn for the second time, on Saturday June 3 from 10am to 4pm with a free, fun-filled community event for all of the family at The Walks, near the town centre.
A number of local churches will gather to celebrate the town and its community and there will be a wide variety of activities, games, sports and entertainment from the main stage including live music, free inflatables activities, free beauty treatments and refreshments.
Celebrate will also be at this year’s Royal Norfolk Show on June 28 and 29, where it is joining together with the Diocese of Norwich to put on an exhibition of the church in action across the region. The Diocese has a large exhibition marquee and a whole host of Christian groups and organisations will come together under the Celebrate banner to join in.
Features will include school choirs, children and youth activities, a reflective garden, interactive displays and a large café area.
