All of us in the Reepham and Wensum Valley Churches welcome you!
Across our benefice we are slowly, steadily and safely reopening our church buildings for private prayer. From the 4th July churches will be allowed to reopen for public worship.
As we return to church for public worship, there will be certain social distancing measures in place to keep everyone safe. Everyone will be asked to use hand sanitiser when entering the church. Masks and face coverings are not mandatory, but you can wear one if you wish. Families will be allowed to sit in “bubbles” but should ensure social distancing is observed to people from other households. Currently we are unable to sing during our services or provide refreshments after the service.
For details of upcoming services, both within our churches and online, please visit the Virtual Church page. For details of churches that are open for private prayer, please visit the Parishes page for that particular church.
We look forward to welcoming you into our churches, online and to our Zoom coffee socials and Café Church.
A few miles north-west of Norwich, in the beautiful county of Norfolk, the villages of the Reepham and Wensum Valley Team Ministry form part of the Sparham and Ingworth Deanery in the Diocese of Norwich. We worship God and support our community within the framework of the Church of England.
The Christian Church has been a central part of our communities for many centuries. At the heart of who we are is our sense of family who care for one another and meet together in services, activities and events.
We take our inspiration from the life and teachings of Jesus Christ worshipping God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit as revealed to us in the Bible.
We aspire to live out God’s love and care for us, our communities and our world. We hope this website will give you an insight into life in our communities: the landscape and the buildings, the history and life today, acts of worship and social events – in fact, all things sacred and secular that make up our life in this lovely place.
There are fifteen churches, thirteen of which are actively used for worship, and at least eight of which are medieval, each with its own character in the community. Please click on the images below to explore our Parishes.
Safeguarding – When you need help or someone to speak to.
The care and protection of children, young people and adults involved in Church activities is the responsibility of everyone who participates in the life of the Church.
We understand that talking to someone about abuse can be difficult and distressing, but our Child Protection Officers and Vulnerable Adult Protection Officers are here to help you.
If you are concerned that someone you know is at risk of, or is being abused, or presents a risk to others, please seek advice from our Safeguarding Officers or if necessary Adult Social Services (0344 8008020), Children’s Advice and Duty Service (CADS) (0344 8008020) or the Police (101). In an emergency, always call 999.
