Church of England Diocese of St.Edmundsbury & Ipswich Aldham

About Us

St Mary's is a small, pretty church with a round tower, situated on a hill overlooking a valley. It dates back to at least the 14th century, although some of the tracery is 13th century and the lower part of the tower is thought to be Norman. Remains of Saxon stonework are found in the walls and window dressing.

Extensive renovations took place in the late eighteen hundreds. The simple interior is lime-washed and enhanced with carved pew-ends.

We have a range of service styles every month (see "Services and Events" on this website); although our present congregation is past its first flush of youth we try to blend innovation and tradition and aim always to be reverent and relevant.

We welcome all visitors to sit in the church or wander in the peaceful surroundings of our well-kept churchyard.
