Food, glorious food, will once again be on offer at Revelation Resource Centre, because the Cafe is scheduled to re-open for business on Tuesday August 4, in time for the Government’s “Eat Out to Help Out” deal.


The offer is 50% of a meal up to the value of £10 for the month of August. What better incentive to come into Revelation to shop and eat!


The Cafe will be open from Tuesday to Saturday each week, starting on 4th August, from 10 am to 3 pm daily. Tim and Mel hope to welcome back regular customers and to greet new faces as the weeks go by.


Revelation’s reputation is “an oasis of calm in a bustling city”. The city may be quieter post-Covid-19 at present but that should serve as an encouragement to come to the shop and cafe.


And there’s another bonus ...disabled parking. Norwich City Council has marked the parking bays outside Revelation as “Disabled Parking”, which should make shopping for some of Revelation’s supporters much easier.


“Use it or lose it” is an over-used slogan. But in these post-coronavirus easing of lockdown measures, it is once again a phrase which needs repeating.

Give Revelation a try – and enjoy the new normality!

Ex-Norwich vicar returns for book signing


Rev Nicholas Vesey will be in Norwich for a book signing on January 8 at Revelation Resource Centre.

Rev Nicholas Vesey who is now interfaith pastor in Aspen, Colorado led St Luke’s and St Augustine’s church in Norwich for 13 years. He left for Colorado in 2014 and returns to Norwich in the new year for one night only for the launch of his latest book ' Living the Life Force'.


About the book


Why does the natural world seem so ordered, and yet our lives seem so chaotic?


From the Big Bang to the present time the universe has moved inexorably forward, and yet humanity seems to be struggling in its wake. In this book Nicholas Vesey explores the nature of the 'Life-Force' that is at the heart of all reality.


Written in an irreverent 'Gonzo' style, Nicholas draws from a wide range of sources to explore our relationship with that 'Life-Force' and how we might cooperate with it. He sets no agenda but offers several ways to find your own spiritual path to that place of peace where your inner experience meets with the natural order of life.

The time of Lent can be a time for many things, but principally it is a time for reflection and preparation before the celebrations of Easter.


At Revelation the trustees have been undertaking their own reflections on what this special place means to us and what it aims to achieve. In fact we have been thinking since we initially met together one Sunday afternoon last July. The outcome of these deliberations is in the form of a vision for the future of Revelation which will underpin our work for the immediate future.


I invite you to join us for our Annual Meeting on Monday 3rd June at 5.30pm when it will be my pleasure to present our Vision for the future. Without giving any secrets away what I can say is that the overriding outcome of our work has been an identification that Revelation is UNIQUE!!


It is unique in that it combines together, not just a shop, a café and a resource centre, but so much more; a place with a sense of community where people can visit and be sure of a warm welcome, a place where people gather to hear moving testimony on topics mainly concerned with mental health delivered through Lent courses, book launches or events.


If this is your first visit to Revelation we extend a warm welcome to you and hope you will discover that sense of “specialness”. We are a charitable enterprise and welcome donations to help support our work. If you would like to make a contribution either by way of a one-off donation or a regular commitment please speak to a member of the café team or shop team who will be happy to help.


With all blessings to you for a Happy Easter!!

Philip Talbot

Trustee
