As well as a church in each village, the Tas Valley cell church lives up to the Norfolk tradition of "doing different". Cells are vital parts of the body - and cells in church life are there to multiply and grow and keep the body healthy. Cells are small groups of people who meet as church-in-miniature.
They are like cells which contain the DNA of what it means to be church - worshipping together, learning from the bible, caring for each other, the wider church and sharing God's love in the local community and wider world.
We are a sister church within the Tas Valley Team, committed to working to complement the ministry of the six parish churches.
Here are our values:
- All Involved
- Becoming Disciples
- Creating Community
- Doing Evangelism
- Encountering God

The Wonder of Eve
Posted: Wed, 15 May, 2013 (6 days ago) by Adrian
I was, like so many, aghast with the news story of those 3 women in Ohio held captive for 10 years, Amanda, Gina & Michelle. They are not the first and won’t be the last, but it cries out to us about how far we have come from God’s original intention in creation. These criminal men had not a clue about the true nature of those they were abusing.
The story of Eve holds such rich treasures for us to discover. The essence and purpose of a woman are unveiled in the story of her creation. These profound, eternal, mythic themes are written not just in the coming of Eve, but in the soul of every woman after. Woman is the crown of creation—the most intricate, dazzling creature on earth. She has a crucial role to play, a destiny of her own.
And she, like Adam, bears the image of God. God wanted to reveal something about himself, so he gave us Eve. When you are with a woman, ask yourself, What is she telling me about God? It will open up wonders for you.
Perhaps, you'll discover that God is relational to his core, that he has a heart for romance. Maybe you’ll see that he longs to share adventures with us—adventures we cannot accomplish without him. And even that God has a beauty to unveil. A beauty that is captivating and powerfully redemptive. This is God... shown in woman.
If we human beings could only begin to grasp the wonder of Eve, perhaps fewer women would be treated with the tragic disrespect that sadly so often comes, and these news stories would be less common.
Wishing you a captivating summer,
