Our church buildings in the Reepham and Wensum Valley Benefice are as individual as the people who have worshipped in them for hundreds of years. They each hold many interesting social and historical artefacts as well as providing spaces for peace, worship and celebration for the communities they serve today. Below are links to The Norfolk Churches website which will provide you with a taster of what you may find when you visit us.
