METHODIST  NEWS

As we write these notes at the beginning of September the sun is still shining, long may  it continue.  If you remember, it was October last year when the remnants of hurricane Ophelia brought summer temperatures to the region and there were spectacular skies over Norfolk caused by tropical air and dust being dragged in from the Sahara.  Does it seem a year ago since we witnessed that phenomenon?!

We have already celebrated Harvest Festivals in our chapels at Litcham and Tittleshall but Litcham chapel is uniting with the Parish Church in Litcham on Sunday 14th October  at 10:15am to celebrate their Harvest Thanksgiving.  We look forward to joining them on this occasion.  You will also note that both Litcham and Tittleshall chapels have no planned services on the 28th October.  This is because we are off to Swaffham Methodist Church for a 10:45am service led by Rev’d Revd Dr Jonathan Hustler.  The service will include Holy Communion.  Swaffham have just undergone a major refurbishment.  No more pews but stackable chairs instead.  This will create a bright, open, versatile space for worship and lots of other activities.  Underfloor heating, greatly enhanced facilities, state-of-the-art audio visuals and internet access will certainly bring the chapel into the 21st century.  When all the building work is complete, a local artist will start work on a mural across one entire wall, bringing together Christian themes and local life.  The one thing that will remain the same will be the warm welcome!  If you are ever in Swaffham and the chapel is open do take a look for yourselves.

We finish with a prayer from the Methodist Church Prayer Handbook for 2018/19.  It was submitted by Eunice Page, a local preacher and home mission secretary in the North Yorkshire Dales Circuit.


  1. Home warm,

  2. bed cosy,

  3. table laden,

  4. family loving.


  5. Dark street,

  6. muddied sleeping bag,

  7. discarded bag of chips,

  8. lost family.


  9. Lord of my life,

  10. Lord of the homeless,

  11. May our love, like yours,

  12. Encompass all.  Amen.



Every blessing.

Veronica and Albert Little

THE QUARTERLY QUERYISTS


This is a new inter-denominational group which will meet once a quarter exploring various aspects of our faith, and sometimes looking at other faiths.

We will be asking lots of questions, hence the Queriest bit, and hopefully getting a few answers along the way.

We will be meeting in Litcham Methodist church on Thursday 22nd March  when our evening will be led by the Chaplain to the Bishop of Norwich, the Revd Susanna Gunner, with her topic being 'Stoneyheartedness and Surrender'

Everyone is very welcome, and we'll even find you a cup of tea or coffee.  Do come and join us.
