It was wonderful to open the doors of Christ Church for Easter and to be able to hold a memorial service for the Duke of Edinburgh. The bell was rung 99 times just before the silence prior to the funeral in Windsor. Thanks to Chris Sharpin for this. Thanks too to everyone who decorated and cleaned the church, and those who brought flowers.
We are saddened to have learned of the death of the Revd Alan Elkins who served as Rural Dean and led several services at Christ Church. We send our condolences to his wife, Joy.
We are also sorry to have been given notification of the retirement of our Priest in Charge, Francis Mason. He and Gill have been with us for six happy years. Francis’ ministry to us, and Fakenham Parish Church, has been rich and rewarding. He has been a good shepherd to the Fulmodeston Parish and we will miss him. Retirement in Lincolnshire beckons and we wish Francis and Gill happiness. Francis’ last service with us will be on August 1st.
We look forward to working even more closely with our Reader, Amanda Sands.
We plan to hold Coffee at the Crossroads on the morning of Saturday, August 7th.
The First of May
by Annette Wynne
If I could stay up late no doubt
I’d catch the buds just bursting out;
And up from every hidden root
Would jump a tiny slender shoot;
I wonder how seeds learn the way,
They always know the very day—
The pretty, happy first of May;
If I could stay up then, no doubt
I’d catch the buds just bursting out.

Welcome to Christ Church Fulmodeston
Christ Church Fulmodeston, reaching to the Future at the Heart of the Community
Christ Church is situated in a working, rural and agricultural setting five miles east of Fakenham, south of the A148. Since recent extensive renovation of the church building, the congregations seeks to serve the local community is as many ways as possible. All are invited to attend not only the regular services but also the extensive concerts and other cultural activities which are mounted throughout the year. We welcome the chance to work with our colleagues at Fakenham and strengthening our ties in furthering the work of God’s church in North Norfolk.
Rural communities rely on ever diminishing facilities. So often the shop, the pub and the post office have closed. This is the case in Fulmodeston in North Norfolk. Some do not drive and the bus routes are not plentiful. In this environment a church and its worshippers can provide a village with a great deal that money cannot buy. At the heart of Fulmodeston is the church, literally at the crossroads. A forward thinking Rector decided to abandon the two churches serving Fulmodeston and Croxton. In their place he and his congregation constructed the current church building in 1881 at the middle of the new centre of the village. Today’s congregation has the responsibility to maintain this building into the next century and beyond for another hundred and thirty years, at least.
In recent years several newcomers to the village have brought with them artistic and Christian backgrounds which they have offered enthusiastically to the service of the community. The village and its church have been reinvigorated with new outlooks and talents. The existing community has embraced them and a cheerful mingling of experience has resulted.
The current Parochial Church Council is committed to putting the church at the centre of the Parish, not only in our worship but by reaching out to the community in as many thoughtful, enterprising and collaborative ways as possible.
