Mission and Your Parish Church: a Diocese of Norwich Training Day at Norwich Cathedral on Friday 3rd March 2017
This is a day of learning about your church’s potential for mission and community service. Open to everyone, not just those within the Diocese of Norwich. The day will be of most use to those who are just starting to think about opening up their church and are interested in exploring ideas and options, although those who are at any stage of the process are also welcome. (flyer attached)
The morning session will be dedicated to talks and discussions about the challenges and opportunities around interpreting and sharing your church’s history. The afternoon session will guide you through practical uses of your church building to better meet the needs of your congregation, community and visitors. This will include looking at community engagement, making physical adaptations to the building as well as thinking about what it really means to open up your church to the wider community. http://www.cathedral.org.uk/whats-on/events/detail/missiontraining

The Changing Parish Church: from Saxon to Victorian, c. 600-1900, Sussex Archaeological Society, Lewes, 29 April 2017
The impact of changes in how our forebears worshipped, in the architectural styles used for churches, in preferences for different layouts and interior features have left their mark on our parish churches. A one day conference organised by the Sussex Archaeological Society also looks at their future.
