St George’s day Scout celebrations at St Peter's Church Sheringham
It is part of the Together Network set up by Church Urban Fund. This network of local relational partnerships work with churches, national and local government, charities and foundations, as well as individual supporters, to bring about positive change in communities.
There are two Development Workers for Imagine Norfolk Together. One is Great Yarmouth and one in Kings Lynn.
Anna Heydon was appointed in 2016 to work in the Great Yarmouth area. Previously Anna worked as a speech therapist, and it is her love of people that is her prime motivation. Her role with Imagine Norfolk Together has given her the opportunity to get to know the community in a deeper way.
Anna Heydon said:
"I work for Imagine Norfolk Together as a Development Worker in and around Great Yarmouth and Gorleston. I love this place, it’s on my heart. I feel that God has given me a very strong, very clear call; one that I can go back to when things get tough.
"Imagine Norfolk Together has now been properly up and running for a year and it's had its ups and downs. I still count it a blessing to be part of this venture and to witness what God is doing in Great Yarmouth, and how He is using people and resources to bless our community.
"So Happy Birthday 'Imagine Norfolk Together' but more importantly a big shout out to all the people I have met during the last year who are showing the love of God in Great Yarmouth. I'm looking forward to even more in the year to come."
