This group supports & funds the Norwich Youth For Christ (NYFC) Youth Project lead by youth worker Emmi Marlow.
This project has been running for over 10 years and is known as 4D.
Emmi runs after school youth cafe’s at the Methodist church on Mondays and Tuesdays as well as regular detached work in Framingham Earl High School.
We have done much together, but it was, perhaps most evident at the time of the Millennium celebrations when we took the lead in organising the local events that marked the beginning of the new Millennium.
Recently we have drawn closer together by the formation of a development group to look into the possibilities of becoming more involved within the community.
One of our decisions was to formalise our relationship by linking with Churches together in England.
We believe that in our increasingly materialistic and secular times there are many who long for deeper meaning in their lives.
Between them, Churches Together offer many opportunities for people to satisfy this longing and come together to share their experiences. Above all, they offer the love of God shown to humanity in the person of Jesus.
Framingham Earl Methodist Church
Minister: Rev'd Matthew Olanrewaju
This church exists for the worship of God, the proclamation of the Gospel and to provide a friendly and welcoming atmosphere in which people can meet in Christian Fellowship.
We are committed to caring and serving the community.
Our Sunday worship is held at 10.45am when we also have a Sunday Club for children aged between 3 and 13 years.
As one of a group of Methodist churches that go to make up the Norwich circuit, Framingham Earl also has a wide range of activities during the week including bible studies, prayer fellowships and various meetings of a more general nature.
The premises are also used by other community-based organisations, including a playgroup and mothers and toddlers club.
Methodists have worshiped in Framingham Earl since the early decades of the 19th century. In looking forward we try to be a community of faith, relevant to the present day, in which people can explore issues of belief and life.

Framingham Earl Bible College
At The Way of the Spirit we offer a prayerful, supportive, community learning approach to understanding the Bible, which helps believers to accept the message God would reveal to them through his Word.
God gave us the gospels so we can find the full life that Jesus came to give us. The Way of the Spirit offers a fresh alternative from dry and academic study, where we explore the life-giving dimension of studying the Scriptures. This draw us into the richness of life that men of the Bible times enjoyed, making sense of the Bible for our lives today.
Through full and part-time teaching and training for all levels, including youth, we find that those who study with us are overflowing, and they want to share the renewed joy they have found in God’s word. This means that we are able to offer training at our Bible training college in Norfolk, as well as using satellite locations and missions bases across the UK and abroad.
