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 Russian invasion of Ukraine brings war to millions who were hoping and praying for peace
There is a long history in our continent of dictators who wage war to grab land, Putin is another in this sad list. For now we must pray for the people of Ukraine. For the people of Ukraine, fear and darkness are their new reality, may Christ bring peace, may Christ bring peace. Jackson
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!

We follow the Diocesan Guidelines https://www.cofesuffolk.org/safeguarding and keep updated through regular training. Each Parish has a comprehensive Safeguarding Policy and our volunteers who work with young people or vulnerable adults are DBS checked or are in the process of being checked and receive 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 Lead: Philippa Price on firstname.lastname@example.org or the Vicar Rev Crompton-Battersby email@example.com or use the link below to report your concern directly.
