Western Shore Team (Benefice) came into being in 2015, and comprises two separate churches, both called St Mary. It was initially called 'Heacham and Snettisham' Benefice, but was given a new name on April 1st 2017
St Mary the Virgin in Heacham, dates back to the 13th century, and St Mary's Snettisham to the 14th century. Alhough in both cases a church building or Christian community existed prior to the current buildings being constructed.
Our Team Rector is The Reverend Veronica Wilson, who first came to St Mary the Virgin in April 2014 as its vicar. Find out more, read her welcome letter
Veronica was joined in January 2017 by Reverend Captain Paul Niemiec, who began in the role of Team Vicar. Read more on the Team Vicar intro.
As His church we are committed to following Christ as faithful disciples in the 21st century.
Do come and join us.
