London church team to help with Thetford mini mission 

Grace Church on Thetford’s Abbey Estate is running a weekend of mission events for the local community aided by a team from the large London church St Helen’s Bishopsgate.

On the weekend of March 16-18 a team from the large Anglican church St Helen’s Bishopsgate in the City of London will be visiting Thetford to help Grace Church host a short series of mission events in the town.

The team of four from St Helen’s have been invited to help by Rev Tony Heywood (pictured), who has led Grace Church since its inception on the Abbey Estate in 2012 on behalf of the Church of England’s Thetford Team Ministry. Grace Church meets in the Main Hall of the Bishop's School on Canterbury Way.   

Tony said: “I'm thrilled that Dan, Lizzie, Brian and Jackson are willing to come and help us in our outreach on the estate. They will be leading the Assembly at Bishop's School on the Friday morning, then leading an evangelism training session, doing some door-knocking and then on the Friday evening leading a Quiz Night at The HUB in Bishop's School. At some point during the quiz, one of the team will give a talk on: 'What's the greatest prize?'

“On the Saturday morning there's a Men's Breakfast with a talk on: 'Is being good, good enough?' Then in the afternoon we're putting on a Ladies' Tea with a talk on: 'Why bother with Jesus?'

“On the Sunday morning the mission assistants will be speaking at St Cuthbert's Church and in the afternoon at Grace Church on 'Does my opinion of Jesus really matter?'

The Quiz Night starts at 7.30pm on Friday, March 16 at the Hub in the Bishop’s School, IP24 1EB.  There is a £2 cost which covers soft drinks, snacks and puddings.  To book contact Tony on
