Church of England Diocese of Norwich Whissonsett

St Mary's, Whissonsett

2021 Lockdown update: Our Benefice Churches remain unlocked daily for those on their 'daily exercise' who wish to pause. Our Services are on-hold in line both with the spirit of the 'stay at home' measure, and comment to that effect from the Bishop of Norwich. Online weekly Rector homilies etc are available HERE. Stay safe and God bless all.

Our medieval Church features a millennium-old Saxon Cross unique in Norfolk.


The Upper Wensum Benefice, which includes Whissonsett Church, is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Norwich’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
