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!

Prayer for the week

Lord, grant us the faith
to wait together
in darkness and uncertainty,
for it is there we will find you.
May we come to know you this Lent
in ways we have not yet discovered
or even imagined.
