Weddings, Baptism and Funerals
It is our privilege to be involved in many of the significant moments of people's lives. Here at The Waterside Group of Churches we will do our best to guide you through what Christians mean by baptism, marriage and funerals.
Message from the Rector
A house divided against itself cannot stand", and "the house that prays together stays together," the scripture tells us. Great words of encouragement to us in the Waterside Group of Churches. The four churches of Catfield, Hickling, Potter Heigham and Ludham, have been drawn together to discern a common purpose together, to walk with one another along The Way, and to grow Gods Kingdom in the villages where we live.
You might wonder what this means and what this looks like in reality, for us we do this in various ways. Bellringing, cinema, car share and computer club, parent toddler groups, Care Home visits with singing and Holy Communion. Choirs and scratch band in pubs, funerals, weddings and baptisms and confirmations, home visiting and pastoral care, as well as social events, visiting our three schools weekly with drama and plays, knitting and nattering alongside coffee mornings to name but a few. These are some of the ways in which we consider to be "growing the kingdom" or loving the people in the communities where we live. We welcome all to join us at services and to help out with young people or our not so young, and all the other things in between, we would be glad to see you and you would be assured of a warm welcome always.
You will see that we also have new services coming up, another opportunity to bring our communities together. On Wednesdays in every Parish at 9.45 am there will an informal Holy Communion Service with music and singing and prayers for healing.
We will begin in February (see dates below).
- St Mary Hickling on 6th February
- All Saints Catfield 13th February
- St Catherine Ludham 20th February
- St Nicholas Potter Heigham on 27th February.
All are welcome.
We also are in the process of preparing a new Electoral Roll, if you would like a form to complete and would like to belong, help out or join in, or start something new in any of our villages contact email@example.com, or Revd Deborah by email on firstname.lastname@example.org. Check out our website and facebook pages: www.watersidegroup.org.uk.
At the beginning of this new year may you and your families and all those that you pray for and help and walk alongside, be blessed now and always, in Jesus name we pray. Amen.
Revd Deborah Hamilton-Grey
