OUR CHURCH

We are a village church, dedicated to St Mary the Virgin, in the Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich. Our worship reflects the broad mainstream tradition of the Church of England.

OUR HISTORY 

St Mary’s Church, Great Bealings is a beautiful place, with many treasures, lovingly accumulated over the years.

The Seckford Memorial and the tudor-brick Seckford porch are reminders of the strong link with the Seckford family in the

16th century.

There are medieval pews, with carved wooden pew ends, and later pew end carvings created by Ipswich wood carver Henry Ringham in the 19th century as part of the major refurbishment instigated by Canon Edward Moor’s family.

The stained-glass windows, carved main doors and Jacobean pulpit - with testa - are similarly to be admired.

For more on the history of this beautiful church, please go to the Suffolk Churches website.  A detailed and fully illustrated guidebook is also available to buy.

The latest issue of Fynn-Lark news for September 2022 is available HERE

BOTH OUR CHURCHES are open each day of this period of mourning (at Woodbridge between 10.30am-6.30pm, Great Bealings - all day) and BOOKS OF CONDOLENCE are provided for you to write your own reflections on our Queen’s faithful, and glorious, 70 year reign. If you wish to leave flowers please lay them between the exterior buttresses on the north side of the St Mary's Woodbridge or inside the porch at St Mary's Great Bealings.
