I hope you are keeping well and have remembered to change your clocks!
Face to face Palm Sunday service TODAY at Surlingham.
Palm Sunday (28th), sees our first face to face service since December, as we gather for an outdoor service in Surlingham churchyard at 10am. Attached, palmsunrockben21.docx.docx is the booklet accompanying this service for you to use if you wish. Please feel free to bring a chair. Good news- we can sing as a congregation, provided we’re in the churchyard! We will continue to follow social distancing rules as before.
Palm crosses will be available in church porches this week. If anyone would like to receive a palm cross or communion at home, you’re welcome to contact us.
