Following discussions with our various PCCs a decision has been made that the Bure Valley Churches will slowly return to face-to-face worship from Palm Sunday. Not all will return at once, but it is planned that we should return to pre-COVID patterns of worship from the 11th of April onwards – although Wednesday and Oxnead will not be back for a while longer. Various services will also be taking place both online and in person during Holy Week and on Easter Sunday. This does depend on the situation the country finds itself in at the time.

This does not mean you have to rush back if you would still rather wait for things to ease more and any risk reduce further as vaccinations role out. Online services will continue for a little while longer and many of our churches remain open for private prayer, so that you can go and sit quietly in prayer and reflection.

A rough outline for church services at Easter is:

  • Palm Sunday: Lammas, Marsham and Brampton
  • Holy Week (Monday to Friday): Evening service at a different church each night
  • Easter Sunday: Burgh sunrise, Lammas and Buxton

During Holy Week there will also be an online (via Facebook) daily reflection with prayer from a member of the Aylsham & District Team.

In the meantime, please stay well, keep safe and I look forward to seeing you all soon.
