East Anglia Updates and Activities

Who would have thought, when it started, that Covid19 would prevent some of our churches from meeting physically for 7 months? It is never easy leading a church, but the pandemic has brought new pressures. Here is a chance for leaders to meet, discuss, share, learn from each other, encourage, support and pray.

Even without Covid19, Partnership East covers 7616 square miles, with some churches 100 miles apart – so the online meet-up saves a lot of time and CO2.

Online Zoom meet-up is scheduled once a month, for 45 minutes. Let’s get involved and see how it develops.

Email: for a link. Don’t worry if you have never zoomed before.

Upcoming Events
