St Mary Bramford is an impressive church close to Ipswich with some unique historical features, such as the Stone Chancel Screen, said to be an original feature of the original 13th Century building, and the stunning 17th  century font cover .  We also have a magnificent Edwardian Reredos and choir pews, and a lofty typical Suffolk Hammer beam roof. 

We welcome visitors to the church, both for quiet prayer and reflection, and for our services.

when you visit, bring binoculars and try to spot the Bramford Monkey on the nave roof.

We are linked with Little Blakenham, Nettlestead and Baylham.
