The Barnham Broom and Upper Yare Benefice is a large group of 15 rural Church of England parishes 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.


Our main Sunday services are at 9.30am and 11.00am and rotate each week between our fifteen churches.  On the first and fifth Sunday of each month all the village communities join together for 10am worship in one of our churches. 


Prayer meetings are held each weekday morning from Tuesday to Friday at 8.30am in one of our churches (see calendar) or at the Rectory in winter and during the day our churches are open for prayer to all and are peaceful places where you can talk with and listen to God. For 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. For details of 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
