Bury St Edmunds Methodist Circuit is fully committed to upholding all requirements of the Methodist Church's Data Protection Policy (GDPR).  More information can be found in "About Us" - please click on this link.


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.  

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

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

Superintendent Minister


Recent Events in the Life of Our Circuit:-

Trinity Methodist Church - Wesley's Wise Words

Wesley's Wise Words

The first Messy Church session of 2019 took place on Sunday 13th January at Trinity.  We had many families back with us, including some newcomers whom we hope will become regulars!  Looking at the life and times of our founder John Wesley, this was a very rewarding session.  Our volunteer helpers were kept very busy, particularly in the kitchen where many special orders were having to be delivered.  Look at all the children seated on our new bright cushions listening attentively to Val, our worship leader, and getting ready for prayers, in the sanctuary!

Getting Ready for Prayer

Christmas Tree Festival at Ixworth

Ixworth Methodist Church Christmas Tree Festival

During the weekend of 7th - 9th December, Ixworth Methodist Church celebrated Christmas with carol singing outside the chapel on Friday evening, followed by a Christmas Tree Festival on Saturday with a range of themed trees.  The weekend was rounded off with a Carol Service on the Sunday afternoon.


Christmas Unwrapped at Trinity

Unwrapping Christmas

On Sunday 9th December, Trinity held their Messy Church Christmas Special, a really happy session which drew in a good crowd from our Messy Church community plus several of the traditional Trinity membership. People were invited to come dressed as an angel, shepherd or king or to come simply as we were to a Nativity Service where we unwrapped presents!
