‘My most sincere thanks go to Rev John Fenn and other collaborators who arranged for a long service certificate to be presented to me to mark my retirement from playing the organ. I have been touched by the many kind and appreciative comments made by friends old and new during the presentation and afterwards. One of my most lasting memories of making music in this church for over thirty years will be the unexpected ending to the service on Good Friday morning.         Godfrey


 We had a great response to the launching of John Butura's book called " An Escape from Communism to a Prisoner of Christ". The book is a real, honest account of John's life, how he grew up in Romania under a Communist regime. He tells us how he was imprisoned several times for resisting the government and where he discovered how cruel the controlling authorities were. He was determined to leave his homeland and in 1988 he escapes to Austria where he lived in a refugee camp for two years before being accepted for emigration to US. It was while he was there that his life was transformed and he began to heal, both physically and spiritually. The details that he shares with us are almost unbelievable. It could change your life! They are still available price £10.

Please see John or Linda.


The journey of the palm crosses

 Masasi is one of the six districts of the Mtwara region of Tanzania.

Our Palm Sunday crosses are hand woven by Masasi villagers from naturally grown and chemical free African palm leaves.

They are grown, harvested, woven and distributed as part of a  self-help programme in eight villages in one of the poorest regions of Southern Tanzania.

On October 14th, we celebrated the 128th anniversary of the dedication of the present church building on 19th October 1890.  (The lounge and Dayspring Centre are later 20th Century developments).   However, the ‘people called Methodist’ in North Walsham are heirs to the legacy of a local grocer, Richard Colls, who in 1797, only six years after the death of John Wesley, applied for a licence to use a building somewhere in the town for ‘Methodist’ meetings – precisely where is not now known.  We must therefore give thanks for 221 years of Methodist witness in North Walsham and for all the people who have contributed to it down the years.  

The last few copies of the book ‘Welcome in this Place’, published in 2015 as a brief guide to the history of this church, its people and to the memorials and furnishings to be found here, were sold.
