In Norfolk and Waveney, there are church communities across 20 deanery areas. 

With over 650 church buildings, the Diocese of Norwich has one of the highest numbers of heritage buildings in the UK.  Over 90% of which are Grade listed buildings, many are hundreds of years old with ancient stories to tell. All our church buildings regularly used for prayer and worship can be found through A Church Near You. 

Church buildings which are redundant, closed, run by preservation trusts or are now ruins can be found on the Exploring Norfolk Churches website. You can also find information, pictures and trails to go on in Norfolk and Waveney. 

The most important part of our churches are the people who serve in them, from clergy and lay ministers, to Parochial church council members and volunteers. Serving their local parishes and communities week in, week out and living out their Christian faith in this way.
