Plans for new church

Have your say

A PIONEERING vicar is looking to set up a new church on a deprived estate.

The Rev Tony Heywood moved to Thetford last summer and has been working to build a new congregation on the Abbey Estate.

Although a designated church building would be a long way off, Mr Heywood is looking to hold services to build up a regular group.

The next will be a Mothering Sunday service on March 18 at 4pm in the Art Centre of the Bishop’s Primary School.

Mr Heywood will also be taking a fortnightly service at Priorsmead Care Home and helping to run the Kidz Klub.

Plans for a service to be held on Easter Sunday and a summer holiday club for children are also being made.
