It’s an early start for the Archbishop this morning as he serves breakfast to school children at a community breakfast run from St Nicholas’ Church Blakeney.
This monthly event started as a one-off Big Breakfast to raise funds for Christian Aid Week, but was so popular, it now runs monthly.
Tricia Temple-Crowe explains:
“Over the last 18 months, it’s been incredible to see how the Blakeney Breakfast has grown and become a regular fixture in the life of the community. We open the doors at 7.50am, usually on the first Wednesday of the month welcoming many children and families on their way to the primary school next door.
“There’s such a buzz as everyone enjoys their breakfast together and by 8.45am we’ve usually served over 50 people. We run a monthly Messy Church in between these sessions and a weekly Open the Book.
“The Archbishop is lovely and he’s been so impressed with everything we are doing here at Blakeney Church!”
Archbishop Justin concurs:
“It’s what these churches should be used for; places to gather community.”
