Yet, O Lord, you are our Father; 
we are the clay, and you are our potter; 
we are all the work of your hand.
(Isaiah ch. 64 v 8)

It is here, the week where the removal van comes and takes all the packed boxes to the location of the next step in Norton’s church life. The last and first service take place 28th July ’19.  10:00 am at “St. John’s” and finishing after processing to “Norton Community Church”.

As a door closes, another (freshly painted) door opens. There will be anticipation and regret, sorrow and joy.  For a few weeks the congregation will have mixed emotions and feel a bit ‘at sea’. Over time, we will put our mark on the place and we will be making it feel like our place of worship.

We are looking ahead to the future, whilst remembering where we have come from and those people that have served faithfully the church society, laying the foundation of who we are today. Our goal is still the same today as it was in 1893 when the old church was opened, and the previous church to that in 1814 – doing God’s work for our neighbours in the name of Jesus.

Sixty solar panels ready to help power the building.
