St. Marys Church, Aldham
A warm Welcome always awaits you at our Churches at the published times
We are a group of village churches to the west of Ipswich with people coming from the villages and towns around them. We are open, welcoming and very inclusive. Our services are just lovely and the people even more so. Honestly, you'll fit right in.
There are no reserved seats, no special codes, or strange ways of doing things. If you want to meet God and some really friendly people, come along one Sunday and join us. If you'd like to chat about getting married hop over to the wedding page, if you'd like to just chat, well we're good at that.
The Rural Coffee Caravan offers a warm friendly space in which to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and a slice of delicious cake. There is no charge...they also offer friendly confidential advice regarding individual entitlements. Click in the button below for more information. Next visit will be 13th December

We've responded to the crisis by serving our communities: raising money for hospital staff welfare; making hundreds of virtual visit telephone calls; distributing meals, staying connected with online services; and sadly helping people say goodbye to their loved ones.
But we must make sure that the churches stay open and we need your help. It's something we can do together, please can you make a monthly contribution? It keeps your church open and serving the community. The government will add 25% to your contribution. We can stay open with your monthly giving, thank you!
Contact the Parish Giving Service who send 100% of your monthly gift and the tax refund to your church

We follow the Diocesan Guidelines and take Safeguarding very seriously.
https://www.cofesuffolk.org/safeguarding and keep updated through regular training. Each Parish has a comprehensive Safeguarding Policy and our Clergy and volunteers who work with young people or vulnerable adults are DBS checked and receive regular Safeguarding training. We review the Safeguarding Policy and our safeguarding practice each year.
If you have any concerns at any time about safeguarding in our parishes please contact the Benefice Safeguarding Officer Mrs Jan King on firstname.lastname@example.org or any of the parish emergency contacts or the Diocesan Safeguarding Team using the button below:
