We welcome you to our website, We are a group of 8 parishes (9 churches) in the heart of Suffolk. We are part of the worldwide Anglican Church, within the Church of England’s Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich.

This Sunday (11th September), the 8am at Cockfield St Peter has been cancelled, the 10am services will go ahead at Gedding St Mary and Bradfield St Clare.  At 3pm we will be holding a Service of Thanksgiving for Queen Elizabeth at St Peter’s Church, Cockfield – all our welcome to attend.  The following Churches will be open every day until the Queen’s funeral; books of condolence have been set up for signature and votive candles can be lit.

We pray for Queen Elizabeth as she enters into God’s care:
Gracious God, we give thanks for the life of your Servant Queen Elizabeth, for her faith and her dedication to duty.  Bless our nation as we mourn her death and may her example continue to inspire us;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

Yours in Christ,
Rev Canon Sharon Potter
