"The Circuit's Mission is to live and share the Good News of God's Love in Christ"
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
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.
I hope you will enjoy exploring this website and discovering all that the churches of the Circuit have to offer.
With every good wish and God bless,
Rev Debbie Borda
