A Church for the whole community. Everyone is welcome to join in any of our services. Our main weekly service is at 10am every Sunday although when there is a 5th Sunday it is a Benefice service, so may be at either Henley or Gt Blakenham. Please check service details on our weekly notice sheet via the menu on the left.
This is a big airy Church and, if you wish, plenty of room for social distancing. Sharing the Chalice and greeting each other during the Peace is left to personal choice
The Church building is open SEVEN DAYS PER WEEK FOR VISITORS AND FOR PRIVATE PRAYER AND REFLECTION . The building will be opened before 10am and closed after 4pm. If you visit on a Friday morning between 10am and 12.30pm you will also be able to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and a chat. During the winter we house the Bacon Road Little Library where visitors can help themselves to books and puzzles and/or donate their own books and puzzles for the enjoyment of others. The service is free although donations are invited.
The parish Church of Claydon & Barham is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults and our Safeguarding Policy can be found on the menu on the left. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer, (PSO). The Diocese of St.Edmundsbury & Ipswich’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
You are very welcome at our Advent and Christmas services and events – bring your family and friends or come along on your own. Whether it will be your first time at church or you have been before, we look forward to welcoming you!
