Preparations are well under way for the Archbishop of Canterbury’s visit to Caister next month

The Most Reverend Justin Welby will visit the coast on 8th November as part of a three-day tour of the Diocese of Norwich

While there, he will visit Caister Lifeboat Station where he will lead a short service from 11am

Schoolchildren from Caister Junior School will contribute, with a dramatization of the Caister Lifeboat Disaster to be performed

The Archbishop will then board the lifeboat, and lay a wreath at sea for all those who have died at sea in wars over the last century

All are welcome to attend the service

In the evening, the Archbishop will be in conversation with the BBC’s Andrew Sinclair about being a Christian disciple at Great Yarmouth Minster at 7.30pm

The event is free, and a light bite of fish and chips is also being offered. Click here to register to attend the Minster event
