St. Peter's, Clippesby is in the Benefice of Martham, Repps-cum-Bastwick, Thurne & Clippesby


Our Benefice consists of four mediaeval churches, each one is  very beautiful & very different.


The four churches are:-

St. Mary's Martham,  grade 1 listed and referred to as 'The Cathedral of the Fleggs'.


St. Peter's & St Paul's, Repps-cum-Bastwich. Thatched with a round tower,  grade 11* listed & is hoping to undergo restoration soon.


St. Edmund's Thurne, Has been recently rethatched &  restored and looks fantastic, worthy of its Grade 11* listing. It occupies a proud position with a superb view of the Bure Valley.


St. Peter's Clippesby, the smallest of the four churches, is a little gem. Grade 11* listed It has a round tower, some superb stained glass, mediaeval brasses & more, much more, which you can read about on this website


Our  Rector/ Priest-in-Charge is the Revd. Dr. Steven Sivyer
