Bury St Edmunds Methodist Circuit


You've landed - Welcome to the Bury St Edmunds Methodist Circuit.  

We are a creative group of people; welcoming YOU to explore with us the landscapes and vistas that offer insight, energy, imagination, expanding wholeness  -         rooted and grounded from an incarnational faith based among ALL. 

The Circuit Churches cover some five hundred square miles of rural mid Suffolk; through villages and chapels, smaller to larger towns and churches, through stunning landscapes and architecture - telling a story of Suffolk Vibrancy, History, and on-going and Creative Legacy. The Circuit moves 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; within this the Rural and Town embraces the whole -  from Ixworth, Glemsford, Cotton and Bradfield.  

Within the Circuit is The Martins, a Methodist Home in Bury St Edmunds, providing housing and care (www.mha.org.uk) and The Culford School (www.culford.co.uk), a Methodist Independent Co-educational Day and Boarding School.

A Few things: 

Zoom Services - Every Sunday at 6pm: from Art with Poetry, Contemplating with Scripture and even Hymns and Songs... or moments of Silent prayer and pattened with Holy Communion. Feel like joining us? Please contact the Circuit Office click here - we'll send you a link.
