Welcome! We are a team of churches full of Christians sharing the love of God in Dereham and the surrounding villages. We serve the whole community through teaching in schools, visits to care homes and hospitals, special events for families, regular services in our eight churches, and much more. We take many weddings, baptisms and funerals and are open to all, churchgoer and newcomer alike. So come and join us!
