About Us

We are a small, welcoming church that seeks to spread God's love within our community.

The church building dates back to the fifteenth century and has recently had a new lighting system installed. It has many historical features, including a unique hammerbeam roof.  Used by generations of villagers for worship, we are proud to offer our building for regular services and is open to visitors most days.

The parish of Wetherden: St Mary the Virgin is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. 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.
