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

Faithful one,
Whose word is life:
Come with saving power
to free our praise
inspire our prayer
and shape our lives
for the kingdom of your Son,
Jesus Christ our Lord.



Home Groups

Fancy meeting up with friends from church for social and spiritual time together?  Finally. post-Covid, we’re re-starting home groups in the Benefice. An opportunity to discuss faith, share stories, study the Bible and pray together. The groups will be for all churches in the Benefice and will meet at various times of the day, different days of the week and with varying frequency – so there’s bound to be a group which fits your needs! Just contact Rev Richard for more details if you’d like to join a group.
