The parish of Yare Valley Churches contains three churches, two villages and some beautiful Norfolk countryside, and we worship in a variety of mutually supportive congregations across the parish. We believe strongly in the importance of building relationships within our communities, as a basis for service and for mission, and over the years have developed many opportunities and spaces in which this can happen. We aim to encourage the gifts and active involvement in church life of every member of the church.
The Yare Valley Churches benefice falls within the Archdeaconry of Norfolk, and so under the care of the Bishop of Thetford (currently in vacancy) and the Archdeacon of Norfolk (The Venerable Steven Betts). The benefice is in the Blofield deanery, with a Rural Dean, the Revd Martin Greenland, and an Assistant Rural Dean, the Revd Kevin Billson.
The benefice of Yare Valley Churches describes their tradition as broadly evangelical, encompassing an appreciation of a breadth of Christian spirituality. These churches have benefitted from an enterprising nine-year incumbency in which significant projects have taken place, bringing growth and vitality as well as a strong sense of purpose and direction. The profile sets out some of the detail of this, noting some of the resources that have been put to good use, and the culture of growth that has been embedded. There is good lay leadership in the benefice and a well-resourced team. The next incumbent will want to build on these excellent foundations, recognising the need for continual renewal of the vision as well as support and encouragement for all those active in ministry and mission. A commitment to collaborative ways of working and an ability to lead the team, prayerfully, pastorally and prophetically, are key requirements for the next incumbent.
