All Saints, Chedburgh is part of the Suffolk Heights Benefice which is comprised of the parishes of Chevington, Chedburgh, Depden, Hargrave, Hawkedon and Rede. A common worship eucharist service is held at Chedburgh every second Sunday of the month with occasional other services.  The building is Grade II* listed.

The parish of Chedburgh is the second largest community in the Benefice. The church, which seats up to 70 people, stands in a prominent position alongside the busy A143 Bury St Edmunds to Haverhill road.

The church is able to be floodlit during the hours of darkness. From October 2014 the switching on of the floodlights can be sponsored during the winter months by anyone for the sum of £15/week to commemorate an anniversary, a special occassion or some other event. To arrange, please contact the Treasurer, Mrs Christine Lofts, Tel 01284 850479. During 2012 the PCC signed up to take part in the 'Suffolk Shines' project and the church was floodlit with some of the Olympic colours. The church is listed Grade II* and details of its history and that of the village can be found in the 'Chedburgh Church & Village Guide' which can be accessed from 'Pages and Links'.

You will always find a friendly, welcoming congregation and a very colourful and inviting atmosphere.

Members of the congregation are encouraged to give through an envelope system and sign up for the Gift Aid scheme.  We help support a charity, Vila Maninga in Mozambique, with some of our giving.

Our main fundraising events are two jumble sales per year, usually in March and November, held in the local village hall, The Erskine Centre. They have become very well known and are very well attended. We also run a ‘100 Club’ which has quarterly draws and helps provide extra income for the fabric fund. For details of how to join, please contact Mr P Westcott  via the ‘100 Club’ link under Pages and Links.

All residents of the village receive a copy of the Suffolk Heights Benefice News, a monthly publication, free of charge. For contact details of editor see 'About the Parish' in 'Other Links' on right.

We also participate in the ChurchWatch scheme operated by the local Police.

It has been found necessary to keep the church locked when not in use but details of keyholders can be found on the porch noticeboard.

There is no running water or toilet facilities at the church.

The graveyard is now closed for burials but there is a small plot set aside where ashes can still be interred. A plan of existing gravestones with details of known inscriptions can be accessed from 'Pages and Links.'

The church is home to the RAF Chedburgh Memorial which commemorates all those pilots and crew that flew from there and were killed during WWII. Each of them is also commemorated by a cross on the two alter rail kneelers, a total of 398.

Prayers - Each month we offer up prayers for those living and working in different parts of the village (see Chedburgh Prayer Card in 'Pages and Links'). If you have any concerns or worries and wish to be included in the prayers then please make contact with one of the church wardens. Please do not feel that you will be compelled to attend the church service but we would be pleased to welcome you and offer any other assistance that we can.
