The A TEAM
Chris and Cathy are part of a team, with folk from other local churches, who go into primary schools in the area to lead fun-filled, lively assemblies with a relevant theme, carefully tailored to provide a Christian witness within the current educational guidelines. However, this activity has had to be suspended due to Covid restrictions.
Dennis leads a small team onto the streets of Hunstanton every week, on either Thursday or Saturday mornings, seeking those whom Holy Spirit has led us to, with “clues” in the form of “words of knowledge”. Our aim is to bless these “treasures” with prayer, healing or a word of encouragement. We pray and worship together first in our building at 10.00am.
If the weather is not conducive to chatting to people on the streets, we prayer walk the town and/or seek to interact with staff and customers in a local coffee shop.
Gordon, Gill and a small team visit two of the Nursing Homes in Hunstanton every month for a short service as well as to talk and pray with the elderly residents. Sadly, this is another activity that has fallen victim to Covid restrictions.
Gordon cooks a breakfast for everyone who pre-books for it at 9.45am (usually) on the third Sunday of each month. He also organises men’s breakfasts from time to time, either in the café area or in a local eatery. These are times for church family members and their guests to eat and fellowship together before enjoying an interesting talk or film, followed by lively discussion.
There is nothing like the occasional quiz evening for coming together with friends, both new and old, for some friendly competition and a little refreshment. Our café area provides an ideal environment for such gatherings.
From time to time, as the Lord prompts us, members of the church family will go out into the local area to pray for the community under the banner of “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.”
When the weather is not suitable for Treasure Hunting on the streets, we will often prayer walk instead (unless the weather is really bad, of course!).
There is usually a joint churches’ “March of Witness” through the centre of Hunstanton on Good Fridays and The Way CF often organises an Easter Sunday service in the open air on the Green, utilising the bandstand for our worship team and preacher. At the present time, the prevailing Covid restrictions will determine what it is permissible to do in public areas.

We have a “Bring & Share” lunch on every first Sunday of the month after our morning service. Tea, coffee, biscuits and (sometimes) cakes are available on the other Sundays. At Christmas we push the gravy boat out and have roast turkey with all the trimmings as well as the compulsory party hats!
Our kitchen is well equipped to provide hot meals (with facilities for heating up food during the service that people brought in) and, of course, to clear up afterwards with two dishwashers to supplement the elbow grease employed at the sink!
Our Tuesday Café, from 2-4pm, is an opportunity to gather with old friends and to make new ones over a cuppa and a jigsaw puzzle, perhaps? If you want to ask questions about The Way, or the Christian faith in general, then church leaders will be on hand to help you.
