St Stephen's takes on The Chapel!

19th December 2016

St Stephen’s Church is delighted to be opening the former Norfolk and Norwich Hospital Chapel as a community venue.
    The Chapel, which is now part of the Fellowes Plain development, will be open as a café for some of the week as well as being used to host community activities, including a choir and a parent and toddler group, with other activities being organised following consultation with the local community.
     We would love to hear from the local community about what they would like to see in The Chapel. If you would like to give your views please complete our short survey by clicking HERE. A paper copy of the survey will also be available from our café in St Stephen’s Church.
     Local residents are invited to come and see The Chapel and meet the team from St Stephen’s on Tuesday 13th December from 10:00am – 3:00pm. We will also have an open evening on Tuesday 20th December 6:30-8:30pm. We will be offering festive refreshments and our Choir Director will lead sing-along carols.
     Rev Madeline Light, Vicar of St Stephen’s Church, said “It’s a wonderful opportunity to engage with this part of our parish, and to extend our vision for Open Doors, Open Hands, Open Heart to the local community through the use of this beautiful building.”

Flintspiration A Success!

8th May 2017

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.

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.
