Error message when creating new widget using block editor

Our church website is WordPress hosted by IONOS.

I have just tried the first update to the Content Sidebar since we were upgraded to WordPress 5.8.

I attempted to add the 'Breakfast Church' item using the new block editor, but I got a message:
There was an error. Invalid parameter(s): requests.

I ended up installing the 'classic widget editor' plugin and managed to create the item by adding two block widgets at the beginning, copying the block HTML from a similar item.

I did it this way, rather than setting up a text widget, to get a more consistent appearance. Incidentally, the 'our vicar' image widget has not been converted to a block and its appearance is not consistent with the others.

There seems to be no good reason for the error message.
