Welcome to The Glaven Valley Benefice

Our Worship  – Glaven Valley Benefice

We offer a wide variety of styles of worship across the Benefice for all backgrounds and tastes – formal and informal, from Communion to Contemplation, from Book of Common Prayer to Messy Church.

We believe strongly that our experience of worship can be hugely enriched by giving ourselves the opportunity to experience God through forms of service we may not have tried before. We invite you to come along to any of the following in any of the churches.
