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 November 8 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 dramatisation 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.
