Soon opening for full activites
May 31 2020 @ 11:29 am – Jun 30 2021 @ 10:00 am

Dear all,
We are awaiting the government’s decisions of opening up society on 21 June.
Meanwhile there can only be 30 people present in a church building at the moment, so we await new regulations allowing us having more activities in the church. Please phone 07570853314 to ‘book a seat’ for Sunday services for now.
We are looking for volunteers to help us out with serving and cleaning at coffee mornings, film nights, craft groups, etc, please contact above number if you can help in any way.
Welcome back soon to the Gustaf Adolf Nordic Church at Park Lane!

Roger Metcalf, LiNC and Stan Royden, GANC

Norwegian 17 May celebrations
May 17 @ 11:00 am

ON 17 May there will be a wreath-laying at the Norwegian Memorial at Pier Head at 11 am.
No further events, unfortunately, the kitchen at the Nordic Church is being refurbished and is unlikely to be up and running again before 17 May,
It is expected that many of those who turn up for the event at Pier Head will find somewhere to socialize afterwards.
