Hundreds of churches - Thousands of people - One big quiz. For one night only - Saturday 17th November - churches and other groups up and down the country will be taking part in the biggest multi-venue, nationwide quiz ever.  Our event is at 7.00 p.m. at St Martin's in Mill Road, so get together your friends and family to make teams of 4 - 6.  The evening costs £5 a head with free drinks and cakes (£2 for children).  Every pound raised will help transform the lives of people living in poverty.  Sign up online here, or on paper at the Parish Church or St Martin's, to give us an idea of numbers.

Our series of Christmas services for 2018 starts with Unwrapped, an alternative look at Christmas, on Friday 14th December at 7.00 p.m. at St Martin’s while, on Sunday 16th December, we have our Carols at Christmas, with traditional carols and readings, at 6.30 p.m. at the Parish Church.

On Christmas Eve, we have our very popular Christingle Services - two of them this year - at 2.30 p.m. and 4.30 p.m. in the Parish Church. (Please note that numbers are strictly limited to 450 at each service.) Also on Christmas Eve there's the traditional Midnight Communion, starting at 11.00 p.m. in the Parish Church.

Finally, on Christmas Day, there are two services at the Parish Church: a traditional Christmas Communion at 9.00 a.m. and an All-Age Celebration for Christmas Day at 10.45 a.m. Everyone is welcome, and we look forward to seeing you.

We're having two Christingle services again this year.  They're both on Christmas Eve in the Parish Church. The first starts at 2.30 p.m. and the second at 4.30 p.m. Doors open half-an-hour before the service starts and, to keep things safe and enjoyable for everyone, numbers are strictly limited to 450 at each service. These are simple services, suitable for all ages, to celebrate the Christmas story, and we invite you bring the children (or come yourself) dressed as shepherds, Wise Men, angels or farm animals so that we can re-enact the story of the first Christmas.

We run Holiday Club style events during each half-term holiday week.

The next one is on Thursday 25th October between 10.00 a.m. and 12.00 noon at St Martin's in Mill Road.

This is a free event, and children up to the age of eleven, their parents and carers are all welcome. Children under five will need an adult to stay with them.  Please contact us for further details.

Work to refurbish the kitchen at the Parish Hall is taking place from mid-October, so there is no activity day there during half-term.  Look out instead, for details of our Family Light Party that is taking place inthe Parish Hall on Wednesday 31st October between 4.00 and 6.00 p.m.

 

Who Let The Dads Out? is a group for Dads, Stepdads, Granddads and other male carers, where they can spend quality time with their toddlers and pre-school children.

Meet other Dads; give Mum some valuable time off; drink tea or coffee and have a bacon roll; do a craft activity with your child; or just play with the toys.

The next session is on Saturday 13th October - 8.30-10.30 a.m. in the Parish Church Lounge - and continuing to meet monthly on the 2nd Saturday of each month at the same time.

You can contact Simon Fenn for further information, or just turn up on the day.

We look forward to seeing you!

Our Family Light Party - Celebrate Light, Celebrate Life - takes place on Wednesday 31st October, 4.00 - 6.00 in the Parish Hall, with games, activities, food and fun for all the family.

If you need further information, you can contact us here.

On Saturday 24th November at 7.30 p.m., Jonathan Veira is coming to Cromer Parish Church with "Songs of Freedom", an unforgettable evening of music and laughter in support of Prison Fellowship England and Wales (one of our Misison Partners).

We regret that we have had to cancel the Women's Brunch this Saturday (22nd September) because of the illness or non-availability of key people and an unusually small number of sign-ups.  We'll try to reschedule for a leter date.  Women's Brunch features a female speaker, good conversation and a continental-style brunch, and all women age 18 and over are welcome. Women's Brunch is normally held at St Martin's in Mill Road. Contact us for further details.
