**** Please take note that all of our church buildings must remain closed during this time of restricted movement ****


The Barnham Broom and Upper Yare Benefice is a large group of 15 rural Church of England churches in 13 parishes in central Norfolk, dedicated to proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ and loving and serving our communities. We offer a very warm welcome to people of all ages.


During the Coronavirus outbreak our usual Sunday services will be suspended and instead will be  livestreamed on Facebook to help protect our vulnerable population from infection. This will take place at 10.00am every Sunday and be live streamed. You can download the order of service in both Word and PDF formats - look for the green "Download" button.


Livestreamed morning prayer and compline meetings are held each weekday from Tuesday to Friday. Unfortunately, in accordance with government restrictions, our church buildings are now closed until such time as we have been advised that it is safe to re-open. We will however continue our life of prayer online and in private. If you would like to find out more about prayer and prayer requests look here and for our weekly Bible readings look here


We also have many social events across the Group but these have been suspended during the Coronavirus outbreak. For details of future events in our churches and villages see our Calendar or search on a church near you.

Our Faith


Belief in God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit is at the heart of our faith. Christians believe that Jesus is God’s Son. Jesus reveals to us that God is our Father, and that God is available to us through the Holy Spirit. 


You won’t ever be asked if you completely understand all this. But you are asked whether you believe and trust. This is called faith. It is a different sort of knowledge. It is the knowledge of being known and loved, and of loving in return.


The Christian faith is not a human invention. There are signs of God’s existence and handiwork in creation for anyone to read (Acts 14.15–17). But we believe in the way we do because God has come to seek us out and has made himself known to us


'The most important decision any person can ever make is to become a disciple of Jesus Christ. It’s the best thing anyone can do.’ Archbishop Justin Welby
