NWCT is an Intermediate Body of Churches Together in England covering the whole of Norfolk and those parts of the Waveney area around Lowestoft.
Our work is to enable Christian denominations to work together to spread the Good News that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came to us to rescue us from the penalty of falling short of God’s standards and to offer us his gift of life in Jesus.

Artificial Intelligence: Hopes and Fears – John Wyatt, Professor of Medical Ethics, University College, London.
This is the advance information about this lecture – put it in your diary now!
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is creating machines that increasingly behave like humans. How does this affect a Christian understanding of the uniqueness of humans and our relationship to God? And how do we balance the benefits and risks of powerful machine intelligence? Professor Wyatt will explore the hopes and fears around AI and its ethical and religious implications.
During his visit to Norwich, there will be two major events on Wednesday 7th November with the underpinning theme of Reconciliation with a significant ecumenical dimension.
At midday there will be a brief act of worship at St. John’s RC Cathedral. He will have just arrived & this will be his first port of call. All will be very welcome at this service.
Choral Evensong in the Anglican Cathedral at 5.30pm will also reflect the this theme.
At 7.15pm Reflections on Reconciliation will take place, again in the Anglican Cathedral & will be chaired by the Bishop of Norwich. There will be four introductory reflections after which Archbishop Justin will invited to respond. This will be followed by a Vigil of Reconciliation.
At 9pm there will be Compline by Candlelight.
Again, all will be very welcome at these services
The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is traditionally celebrated during the octave of St Peter & St Paul which runs from 18th to 25th January each year .
