Welcome to the Glaven Valley Benefice

sharing God’s love in our communities…

Welcome to the website for the Glaven Valley Benefice in North Norfolk. We are a group of five, beautiful Anglican churches working together in the villages of Blakeney, Cley, Glandford, Letheringsett and Wiveton.

We are a friendly, welcoming and inclusive community. We believe that the love of God in Jesus Christ is for everyone, of all ages and backgrounds, to receive and experience. So we offer a warm welcome to all – both residents and visitors – and we provide services to suit various styles of worship, along with many groups, activities and events. The five parishes work closely and cooperatively together, and there is a great sense of fellowship, friendship and support across the Benefice.

The What’s On tab will give you up-to-date listings of all our services and events.
Please Contact Us  if you have any questions.

If you’re a regular visitor to the site you may need to refresh pages as you visit them to be sure you’re on the most up-to-date version!

Transatlantic Hot Club come to Cley Church!

27th April 7pm at Cley Church

An evening of French Gypsy Jazz from this inspiring trio
on violin, harp and double bass. 

Gypsy swing is a style of music made popular in France during the 1930’s by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. They combined traditional Romanian music with the swing jazz of the time and in 1934 formed the Quintette du Hot Club de Paris and the Hot Club moniker has been used ever since to denote this style of music. The music is string based with no drums or brass but the Transatlantic Hot Club is unique in featuring a harp rather than a guitar.
