Imagine Norfolk Together's August news and prayer letter
Welcome to the August edition of Imagine Norfolk Together's news and prayer letter (Great Yarmouth)
I work for Imagine Norfolk Together as a Development Worker in and around Great Yarmouth and Gorleston. Imagine Norfolk Together is a joint venture between the Diocese of Norwich and the Church Urban Fund which aims to support churches in their engagement with the local community so that together we can grow in relationship, strength and capacity to meet life's challenges
As always I would love to hear from you. Please ring me on 07471 357072 or email me at email@example.com
Park Baptist Church has started new social sessions to ensure that there is plenty of opportunity to make new friends, enjoy some social activities, and to invite friends who don't go to church
Park Baptist currently runs two social sessions on Fridays. The first is between 2.30pm and 5.00pm at Chatterteria, 86 Middle Market Road, Great Yarmouth, NR30 2DT. There are crafts and activities, or a chance just to meet people and chat. The second is a new social event which happens every Friday at 7.00pm at Park Baptist Church, 14A Crown Road, Great Yarmouth, NR30 2JN
Please contact the church for more information:

The Clewer Initiative was set up 3 years ago to help equip churches to recognise modern slavery in our communities and to be part of the solution for ending it. They provide training as well as a number of informative and publicity resources such as the poster below.

DropPoint is a new free platform. It networks charitable organisations asking for items they could use, and allows people to search for causes and donate items they no longer need. It's brand new so there's not a lot on there yet, but if you contact them they will add your charity or organisation
