Welcome to the Website of Cloverfield Community Church.
Cloverfield Community Church is an LEP (Local Ecumenical Project) which was jointly sponsored by the Diocese of Norwich and the United Reformed Church. The church was ‘planted’ in 1992 initially worshipping within a nursery on the Cloverfield Estate. Our purpose built building was put into use in the year 2000.
Helen’s Leaving Date and Licensing
Helen will shortly be leaving Cloverfield to take up a new post in Oulton Broad. To help prepare for this, there will be opportunities at Abide this month, and on Sunday, 29th September, to pray together for the future at Cloverfield and for Helen as she prepares to leave. Helen’s last Sunday at Cloverfield will be Sunday, October 13th and there will be a United Service at Cloverfield on that morning. Other details regarding a farewell gathering will be announced shortly. Helen’s Licensing Service at St. Mark’s Oulton Broad will be on Monday, November 4th at 7pm. Everyone is welcome and Helen would love to see anyone there who is able to attend.
Swedish Twinning Visit
Along with St Cuthberts Church we have just hosted a visit from four members of our twin churches from Holmsund in Sweden. Our guests were shown round the town, including some of the historic sites, followed by lunch at the soon to be opened St.Cuthberts Cafe. We had a facinating visit to the the Eldred’s nuclear bunker at Barnham and a fun beetle drive evening at Cloverfield Church. The following day the visitors were hosted at Norwich Cathedral.
Sunday saw our visitors taking an active part in services at St Cuthberts, Cloverfield and Grace Church.
Although these exchange visits are always great fun, there is also a serious side as we seek to learn from each other as we develop our missions in our respective parishes.
Don’t miss Helen’s sermon series entitled ‘God Describes Himself’ over the next few weeks – and if you do, head to the downloads section to catch up on this exciting series of talks.
A New Kitchen
One of our partners using the church is the Thetford and District Dementia Support Group. They meet on a Friday and provide support and lunch to their members. To meet local authority hygiene standards we needed to upgrade our kitchen. Thanks to some hard work applying for and thankfully the awarding of grants, along with some generous additional donations, we have been able to install a catering standard kitchen. This makes it much easier for all our user groups to cater for their events.
