On Saturday 5th May, our Bury St Edmunds Circuit had the pleasure of welcoming Rev Loraine Mellor, President of Conference for an East Anglia District Celebration Event!

District Celebration - St Edmundsbury Cathedral

The wonderful celebration which took place at St Edmundsbury Cathedral in the evening, where Rev Loraine Mellor preached on the theme "Day by Day in Worship and Mission".  People came from far and wide for this event.  Rev Julian Pursehouse, District Chair, and Superintendent Minister Rev Debbie Borda also took part in this event, whilst a worship band from Haverhill led the congregation in singing.


We cover some five hundred square miles of rural mid Suffolk, stretching from Needham Market in the east, taking in Stowmarket as you travel west, across to the Cathedral town of Bury St Edmunds and then down to Sudbury. Delightful, picturesque villages can be found on the minor roads throughout the area which makes travelling through the countryside a pleasure.

Ten churches make up the Circuit, one of which, Christchurch in Needham Market, is a united URC/ Methodist congregation. From large town centre churches to smaller village chapels the Circuit seeks to give expression to our calling as worshipping, serving, outward looking, and caring communities.
