As we return to worship in our churches, the same restrictions apply before the latest lockdown (e.g. wearing of face masks and social distancing).  Services will be live streamed via YouTube from St Margaret, Reydon for those continuing to join us from home.

Our website and CoE contains details of how to join others online for prayer, worship, study, and community life

BEWARE OF SCAMS ALLEGEDLY FROM THE CLERGY Please be aware that scammers have been claiming to be Rev Simon or Alan and asking people to purchase itunes or Amazon vouchers.  Please be aware we would never request this.  The email does not come from an official email address but from a fake one claiming to be ours.

Suffolk Churches Ride & Stride/Pedal & Drive 2021 Saturday 11 September Full details are now available for the several thousand cyclists and walkers of all ages and drivers of vintage and classic cars who will take part in the annual fundraising event. In 2020 £190,000 was raised in a day.  The money they raise help save this wonderful part of our history, with half going to the Trust to give out as grants for church buildings, and half to the cyclists’/walkers’ chosen church.   Also, on the same day, a vintage and classic car rally is held with cars travelling a provided route, around a selection of churches.   Sponsor forms and full details for Ride and Stride and Pedal and Drive are now available in Suffolk churches and from the Trust website. Donations and sponsorship can also be collected via Just Giving.  Please visit:
