Welcome

We are a group of twelve churches in West Norfolk, comprising the parishes of Fincham, Marham, Nordelph, Runcton Holme, Shouldham, Shouldham Thorpe, Stow Bardolph, Stowbridge, Tottenhill, Watlington, Wimbotsham and Wormegay. The Benefice is known as the West Norfolk Priory Group.

There is always a Sunday service at one of the churches in the benefice: the venue and time of service can be found on our calendar. Additionally, there are Holy Communion services and Morning Prayer during the week. More information is in the calendar. We have traditional services from the Book of Common Prayer as well as more modern worship using Comon Worship. We use the Psalter and our hymns are from the New English Hymnal with worship songs from New Hymns and Worship Songs.

Supporting Our Churches

Supporting our Group

Whilst we encourage giving to our individual churches to help maintain the buildings and support our work in the individual parishes, we also have central costs that we have to meet in order to further our work across the group. We are therefore asking for donations and regular giving to support this work. If you would like to set up a regular giving Direct Debit, this can be done through our Parish Giving scheme. One off donations can be made via our Give A Little page. For more information, please see our Support Us page.

Supporting our Churches

There are a number of ways in which you can give to our individual churches to support the work that we do - either as a one off donation or by regular direct debits. For more information, please see our Support Us page.

Easy Fundraising

You can also raise money for our churches whenever you buy anything online – from your weekly shop to your annual holiday. There are over 4,000 shops and sites on board ready to make a donation – including eBay, Argos, John Lewis, ASOS, Booking.com and M&S – and it won’t cost you a penny extra to help us raise funds. If you want to know more, please go to our Easy Fundraising page and select the church you would like to support and then click the 'support this cause' button. At this stage, we only have Holy Trinity Marham and St Martin's Fincham set up with Easy Fundraising. We will set up fundraising opportunities for our other churches over the next few weeks. If you would like to use your online shopping to raise funds for any of our other churches, please contact us through our online form.

Wimbotsham, Rebuilding Project Survey

After the church of St. Mary, the Virgin in Wimbotsham was destroyed by a devastating fire on 4 September 2019, Wimbotsham Parochial Church Council (PCC) decided to survey people who live in the parish or who had used the church, to find out what they would like to see incorporated when the church is rebuilt.

770 questionnaires were distributed and 246 (32%) were returned, an excellent response rate for this type of questionnaire. We have now published the findings for that survey here.

We will post news about our rebuilding project on this website over the coming months. You can also see our photo gallery showing the devastation the fire caused here - and we will add photos of the work in progress.
