Norwich Diocese wants to build a church out of Lego 

The Diocese of Norwich wants to build a church out of Lego at this year's Royal Norfolk Show and is appealing for spare bricks.

The Diocese will be inviting visitors to construct a big Lego church building at its Norfolk Show marquee.
Gordon Darley, Director of Marketing & Communication, said: "Norfolk is a county full of the most beautiful churches; the majority are medieval and local people have worshipped in them for centuries.
"The aim of the project is to highlight the care and dedication of so many volunteers who look after their local church building, brick by brick, to ensure it’s open for the local community and visitors each day."
Each year the Diocese of Norwich has a significant presence at the Norfolk Show highlighting the work of the church serving communities across our county through 650 churches and 110 schools and academies.
Gordon said: “The show is a great opportunity to highlight the life of church in the local community. Often church buildings are used not just for Sunday services but also for vital community services such as toddler groups, Foodbank collections, dementia cafes and more.  We’re really looking forward to the Norfolk Show; we think everything about it will be awesome!”
The Diocese is asking for help to gather as many Lego bricks as possible for the build. If you have any unused Lego (it can’t be returned) which you can donate to them, please drop off or post it to Diocesan House, 109 Dereham Road, Easton, Norwich, NR9 5ES and mark with the words “Norfolk Show Big Build”.
