Curious Curate Contributes to Community

July 2017

New Curate at St Stephen’s

Big news afoot – St Stephen’s welcome our new Curate to join the team for the next few years. His name is Alex and he is hot off the ordination press.  Alex’s duties will include many of the pastoral and ministerial jobs that Madeline does as Vicar but also pursuing projects of his own.
Alex recently moved to Norwich from Oxford with his wife Sophia who will be working as the Pastoral worker for Chapelfield Road Methodist.  Sophia is learning the piano with an ambition to master some tricky hymns and Alex is a big fan of cricket.  (The sport, rather than the insect I presume.)

Building Work Has Started!

July 2017

Work on the Church for the next stage of the “Open Doors” project is beginning in July.

The Cafe kitchen will be moving to the meeting room as the current kitchen is transformed into a much more suitable space for a Cafe that is as busy as ours. 

Other works in this time will be to the office to create cleverer storage solutions, and changing the way the team use the space by utilising the area at the back behind the alter.

The side chapel will be completely glazed off to create a quieter space for prayer, meetings and contemplation, whilst doubling on a Sunday morning as space for childrens work.  One very interesting aspect of this is a type of digital glass that is used – at the press of a button the glass can become opaque or transparent depending on the privacy needs of the group meeting there! 

The doors, North and South will also have a remake to bring them up to the standard of the main entrance and be inviting as well as secure.  They will also significantly help retain heat in winter better than the medieval doors there currently. 

St Stephens Council apologise in advance for any disruption this may cause to users of the church and the Cafe. 

Revelation 3:20

Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.
