May you know the joy of Christ this year.
Thank you for visiting the Chet Valley Churches Website where you will be able to discover more about us and what is happening. The Chet Valley Churches are part of the Diocese of Norwich
Even though you may not be able to travel or visit at the moment, why not take a virtual tour of our churches, set in beautiful south Norfolk around the River Chet.
With effect from 6th January we have taken the tough decision and accepted the Bishop of Norwich's permission to suspend public worship for the duration of the National Lockdown in England. Therefore whilst we work hard to mitigate the spread of Covid-19 in its different variants, some of our church buildings will only be open for private prayer.
We are uploading an act of worship each Sunday (see below).
Our online Service for the 3rd Sunday after Epiphany in the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity (24th January), will be available to view here The Service Sheet can be downloaded by clicking here.
You can also catch-up on past services and see what we've uploaded by clicking on the Services tab or visiting our YouTube Channel
Each of our church buildings has different characteristics therefore it is is essential that the building meets the required Covid-19 safety criteria.
It is mandatory for everyone entering a Place of Worship to wear a face covering unless they have an exemption. Please remember to do so and to use the hand sanitiser on entering.
The Calendar contains details of what is happening in the parishes of the Chet Valley.
Our weekly New-sheet is available to download here.

If you are local to the Chet Valley you may be able to help us as we look for a volunteer because....
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, and especially so during the Covid-19 pandemic. If you’re planning to visit us, check out the calendar to see what’s on.
In normal times 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.
