Chinese New Year 2023
Norwich minister helps mark Chinese New Year 

A Norwich church leader is involved in celebrating Chinese New Year at an national online service on January 22 which represents the voices of many churches across the nation.


The service includes contributions from The Tea House, which supports Anglican Chinese heritage clergy across the UK. Usually, the service is from just one church, but this service represents the voices of as many Chinese heritage clergy as possible.
