Acle rectory prayer walk 20 75

United church group prays for Acle

Acle Churches Together have held their traditional annual prayer walk around the Broadland village of Acle, stopping to pray at significant community locations around the village.

The walk was led by Church of England rector Rev Martin Greenland, Methodist minister Rev Andrew King and Roman Catholic Deacon Rev Peter Glanville, a retired BBC producer who, about 16 years ago, conceived the original  idea of the walk as a useful tool to encourage a spirit of ecumenism among the villagers.
A cross - section of denominations joined together on the afternoon of Sunday March 1 to tour the village and pause outside various locations to recognise and pray for the work done by the staff within each building.
These included St. Edmund's church, the Police Station, the Old Rectory, the Veterinary Hospital, the Academy, the Cemetery, the Recreation Centre, the Medical Centre, the Library, and finally the Methodist Church where welcome refreshments were served in a very convivial atmosphere.
