Wrabness 900th Anniversary

Wrabness church dates from about 1120 and the first named priest is John The Chaplain in 1220, making 2020 the 900th anniversary of the current church building and the 800th anniversary of the first named priest. So it is a good year to celebrate so many centuries of Christian worship in Wrabness.

May 17th, Rogation Sunday, was to have been a celebration with a special service lead by Bishop Stephen Cottrell, then a walk through the meadows down to the river followed by a buffet lunch in the village hall.

Many people were to have been invited to give thanks for all those who have faithfully served God in Wrabness over the centuries. However, this has all gone on hold for the time being. Bishop Stephen is going to be made Archbishop of York in July, so he will be unable to join us for any future celebrations.

We still hope to hold a special service, possibly on All Saints Day, November 1st, as the church is dedicated to All the Saints. Watch this space!
