During the current Coronavirus Pandemic, services across the team have had to go online, with our weekly virtual service via Youtube. We aim in these services to include as many members as possible. Here is this weeks service, with Rev'd Heather Wilcox preaching.
The Long Stratton and Pilgrim Team ministry, is a team of 8 churches in the heart of South Norfolk serving the town of Long Stratton and villages of Aslacton, Bunwell, Carleton Rode, Great Moulton, Tibenham and Wacton.
We are a lively team of churches, with at least 4 services taking place in our churches every sunday, alongside regular weekly activities for young and old alike.
The Ministry Team comprises the Team Rector, Revd Heather Wilcox, Team Vicar, Revd John Madinda, Rev'd Gill Osborne a Ordained Local minister, three readers and an authorised worship assistant supported by a retired Priest and reader, both with permission to officate.
We embrace a range of worship styles across the churches and seek to share God's love within the communities we serve.
In early March 2020, a vision document 'Just Believe ...' was launched for the team, which aims to see 100% growth across the team in the next 18-24months, growth in discipleship, service and numbers. Drawing on material from Leading your Church into Growth, this vision document is meant to be a tool to enable all the PCC's to develop their own plans for growth, in their own particular context. To find out more, please see the document below.
Due to Covid-19 and in line with Government and Church of England guidance all church services across the team are currently suspended (except for funerals) and our church buildings locked. However as a worshipping community we are still active, with weekly on-line services, daily reflections, activities via zoom and livestreaming.
