Benefice Prayer Walk: Sunday 8th May 2016

About 40 people (and four or five dogs) from all four parishes in our new benefice took part in our Prayer Walk. We walked for about 7.5 miles through the Suffolk countryside in glorious sunshine and temperatures up to 24 C.

The route included all four churches in the benefice, with a short service at each, and also much-appreciated refreshments.

We are very grateful to all those who made this walk possible by planning the walk, arranging refreshments and making sure we all got back safely.

It was a very happy occasion and a great opportunity for us all to get to know each other better.
