St. George’s Comes Alive

If you were to take a trip to Diss, then on to a village called Shimpling and then away from the village down a track strewn with wild flowers, and through fields with luscious grass waving in the soft Norfolk wind you will come across an ancient graveyard and there in the middle sits St. George’s Church. Cloaked in warm coloured stone with an unusual Norman round tower, decorated with medieval stained glass is the church that is described by the Churches Conservation Trust as ‘ a beautifully proportioned building.’ It is here, says Bishop Graham of Norwich, a staunch supporter of the Campaign that the church will come alive with a service of Holy Communion the first for 25 years on Monday 23rd April.  So whilst no bells are able to ring, it is part of the celebration of our Patron Saint and we wish them a happy day.
