Churches in the Deanery of Severn Vale
The Deanery of Severn Vale currently has 47 churches within its bounds. In the Church of England, many churches have now been organised into groupings called 'Benefices', collections of churches served jointly by an individual priest or small team. In our Deanery, this is the case for most of our churches.

Benefice Prayer Links in the Severn Vale Deanery
In 2009 the deaneries previously Gloucester North and a large part of what was Forest North were merged to form the new deanery of Severn Vale. As part of the "getting to know each other" process, links were established between benefices, one from each of the two original deaneries. These encourage prayer for each other, as well as other communication, such as visits to each other's benefices, sharing of services, exchange of parish/benefice magazines, etc.
