Combs, St Mary

Combs Church is re-opening for Worship. We are very glad to be able to welcome you back for worship in our church for various services this summer. Throughout our Benefice some churches remain closed but, as one of the larger church buildings, we are able to welcome you for Sunday services on a number of different occasions.

Throughout our Benefice, each week there will be an 11am service of Holy Communion in one of the larger churches (please contact Revd Chris to book your place) as well as a 9.30am Zoom service that people are welcome to attend from wherever they are. Weather permitting, Evening services will take place in all of the smaller churches throughout the summer. Please check the summer service list (here) to find a service near you.

Churches currently open for private prayer are: St Mary's Combs: Wednesdays 2.30-4.30pm (unless a service is taking place)

Welcome to St Marys Combs, Suffolk, a place of Christian worship for nearly 800 years. Our magnificent 15th Century building is the focus of our church community which gathers week by week to engage with God’s Mission of love to the world. Will you join us on our journey?

Please explore the pages on our church and our services, and we promise to give you a warm welcome when you come to see us in person. Often I lead the worship, otherwise it will be another Minister from our team.
