• Welcome.

    Thank you for visiting the Chet Valley Churches Website. The Chet Valley Churches are part of the Diocese of Norwich

    Whilst church services are suspended during the Coronavirus outbreak we shall be uploading a weekly order of service for our Sunday services. The morning service is available here

    and Last Sunday Praise can be found here

    Dispersed as we may well be we can take time out each evening at 7pm to pray and use the materials available from the Churches Together in England website

    The Calendar contains details of what is normally on in our churches. In view of the current Coronavirus outbreak all events have been cancelled. Following the announcement by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York public worship in our churches is suspended until further notice and with effect from 24th March our church buildings have been closed.

    Have a look at our Events section which highlights some of what is happening

    Our Photos Gallery has some pictures of what we've done

    Our latest weekly Church Newsletter can be visited here

    Our latest issue of "Contact" is available here In view of the current situation it is not possible to deliver copies of "Contact" to each local household. However we have taken boxes to various shops in Loddon & Chedgrave therefore do pick up a copy when shopping. Normally the uploaded version omits the adverts but for this month they are here. You'll need to scroll down through some blank pages to get to them.

    The Chet Valley Churches are a group of worshipping communities centred around the River Chet in south Norfolk. Our churches range from a tiny thatched church to a huge 15th century building, and our styles of worship vary too.

     

    Like many rural churches, service times are not always the same every week, so if you’re planning to visit us, check out the calendar to see what’s on.

     

    Our Sunday services encompass both traditional and contemporary styles. Some follow the Book of Common Prayer (BCP), or current versions of the Holy Communion service while others are aimed at being more family friendly, in particular All Together Worship and Xpressions Café.

     

    To find out more about the Church week by week, have a browse through the website, or click on the link at the top of this page to find our Weekly News. Daily Prayer is is said most weekday mornings. To join in at home or on the move then visit the Prayer tab above.

     

    On the rest of the site we'll be telling you about who we are. We hope that you'll like what you find and come and join us for some of the events. To make things easy to start with, here are the main services. It is always worth checking on the calendar however,  to see if there are any changes.
