Old Buckenham bags a bishop

Meet up with Bishop Graham
All Saints PCC invite you to an informal gathering with light refreshments on Sunday 6 May between 12 noon to 1pm at All Saints Church.

The Right Reverend Graham James, Bishop of Norwich, will be visiting Old Buckenham on that Sunday and has kindly agreed to spend time at All Saints Church before going on to have lunch at the Gamekeeper.
This won't be a church service or a fundraiser, just a chance to get together in an informal setting and hear what Bishop Graham has to say. All are welcome. It will provide a chance to say thank you to everybody who is engaged in the 'Raise the Roof’ effort but also to all those who make a difference to life in our village by working on committees, organising, helping out and supporting the many groups, organisations and activities that exist in Old Buckenham.
This is an opportunity to meet Bishop Graham - prominent in religious life (as the longest serving Bishop in the Church of England) of course but also a member of the House of Lords, a regular visitor to the Queen at Sandringham, a broadcaster and entertaining speaker, rumoured to have a keen interest in amateur dramatics. He is a patron of many charities and may provide words of inspiration and perhaps a bit of a pep-talk to encourage everyone, whatever they are working for.
Drinks and light refreshments will be served so an rsvp would be helpful for catering numbers but not essential should you make a late decision. Children and other family members are welcome – it will be delightful if you are able to come along. Please contact Sarah Dye to rsvp or for more details. Ring 01953 860865 or email
