Urban harvest celebration for Norwich’s city workers

St Andrew’s Church in Norwich's city centre is offering city workers the opportunity to take a break during their lunch hour to thank God for his blessings as part of their urban harvest celebration.

St Andrew’s Church, neighbouring Norwich's Cinema City, is eager to support Christians working in the city centre, making it easy for them to access a place of faith, and easy for them to invite their co-workers to church. 

As well as their regular Daybreak prayer services every Tuesday at 8.10am aimed at setting people up for work, and their Thursday lunchtime 20 minute City Talks, they also host special midweek services at Easter, Christmas and Harvest. On Thursday, October 17 the church will host its Harvest Service for the business community.  The 40 minute service, starting at 1.05pm fits within a lunch hour and offers a complete break from the pace of working life.

Vicar Rev Martin Young (pictured) said: “We may not do a lot of physical harvesting in the centre of Norwich, but we do enjoy the fruits of our labours, and we all have a lot to give thanks for. This service will give us an opportunity to give thanks for the good things we enjoy and pray for God’s blessing on our city and our business community especially in the turmoil and uncertainty of our current times.”

With wonderful music, a short Bible based message set in the context of work life and a warm welcome with food and drinks served after the half hours service it is well worth popping along to.

And looking ahead, the church’s Business Community Christmas Carol service will be held on Thursday, December 19, 1.05pm.
