St Stephen's takes on The Chapel!
Flintspiration A Success!
Flintspiration was a weekend in Spring that welcoming people into the historic churches of Norwich to engage with the history of the city and the oftenunseen gems of Norwich
Naomi, the coordinator for St Stephen’s said:
“The Community learning team told me that they had several people commenting that they would usually feel awkward about going into a church and having to keep the kids quiet, but they enjoyed coming into St Stephens. At a rough estimate we had about 400 visitors each full day and about 200 customers in the cafe each day.”
Neil from the Norwich Historic Churches Trust who organised the city wide event had this to say:
Now Flintspiration has finally come and gone I’d like to take the opportunity to thank you for all you did to support the project – from your early personal encouragement and allowing us to use St Stephen’s as the pilot Hub back in September, through to the three days of the event proper when it hosted such a fantastic range of children’s activities. I think both the sheer numbers of visitors and the amazing photos of happy, smiling and engaged children leave no doubt as to how successful it was a base for that part of the programme. I’ve heard glowing accounts too of the choir as it met Margery’s Quest. We were delighted with all the outcomes, and hope it worked for you too.
