The following churches have now reopened:Attleborough, Bowthorpe LEP, Bowthorpe Road, Drayton, Forncett, Heartsease Lane, Horsford, Mile Cross, Old Buckenham, Rosebery Road, Spixworth, Sprowston and TrinityThorpe Marriott. Framingham Earl has held services on 4th April and 2nd May and will be open from Pentecost Sunday 23rd May. Chapel Field Road and St Peter’s Jessopp Road LEP plan to open from 23rd May which will be Pentecost Sunday; St Peter’s will be changing their service time to 10.30. This year, the 23rd of May is also Aldersgate Sunday when Methodists remember the anniversary of the day when John Wesley felt his heart to be strangely warmed as he believed in Christ for salvation. Other churches in the Circuit are still to decide when they will reopen but many will be waiting until Pentecost Sunday. Please see individual churches’ pages for full details of their services. We will also continue to offer Spiritual Sustenance on line.
