24th August 2020: Installation and Induction of new Rector for Dereham Team

aa24th August 2020 at St. Nicholas Church, Dereham

The Installation and Induction of the Revd. Canon Paul Cubitt finally took place, following a delay due to Coronavirus.

The present situation meant that numbers to the serice had to be restricted to 100, and was by invitation only. Those attending had to wear facemasks, and every effort was made to keep people safe by socially distancing seating around the church.There was an added bonus in as much as Paul had set up a camera, so the service was 'live-streamed' on Facebook. This meant that many people were able to watch the service from the comfort of their own homes. This was much appreciated and enabled people to feel included in the proceedings, although from a distance.



There could be no celebratory party after the service, but every attendee received an individually boxed piece of cake to take home to enjoy.

The efforts made to make this a safe yet meaningful event is a credit to those who organised this service.

Our very best wishes go to Paul and his wife, Clare, as they begin their ministry among us.
