Hopefully the information in our website will encourage you to visit our wonderful Church, at sometime in the future, because it is never easy to go somewhere new for the first time! We are friendly and caring and you will find us cheerful and welcoming. We are part of the Church of England and we are in the Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich. St Mary's, a beautiful, Grade 1 listed building, with a history dating back almost 600 years, is open every day of the week. This website will give you information about our services, our activities and our contact points. 

"Like many people who walk into our church, you may just be browsing. You may live

near us or many miles away.  We hope that you will discover here something of God's presence and love, which stimulates us to serve Him in our  daily lives."                           

The Revd. Canon Kevan S. McCormack, Rector (2000 - 2020)
