Welcome and we are delighted that you are accessing the Bury St Edmunds circuit website. Things have had to change, so what’s going on……….. well…………..
The church is no longer in the church buildings but there is a church in every home and we are reaching out to people across the world.
Every week we produce a newsletter with circuit news, it is so important that we keep in touch with one another – this you can see below.
Every week we are producing a worship sheet which you can find at https://www.burystedmundsmethodistcircuit.org.uk/185207545757.htm This is posted out to those without internet access.

We may not be meeting
in the way that we have for hundreds of years but we are continuing to worship,
to praise God, to pray and to have fellowship together. We are using many forms of technology to do
We are keeping in touch
with one another and if you are new to this website and would like someone to
talk to then please contact one of the ministers.
God is very much alive here in our lives and we are witnessing God’s love in a different way. We must never forget that God is with us and that at the heart of the Christian Gospel is a message of hope, and that is something that the world could do with right now.
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
