Church of England Diocese of St.Edmundsbury & Ipswich Mendlesham

St Mary the Virgin, Mendlesham

St Mary's is a very special building - a reminder of the presence of Jesus Christ - a sacred space where we encounter God in silence and in worship - a centre of care  where the sick are healed and sinners (all of us) find forgiveness - where the community gathers to mark important stages of life - and an outstanding architectural beauty.

St Mary's is OPEN every day between 9.00 am and  4.00 pm for worship, prayer and for visitors each day.

The wearing of face coverings is now optional, but please be sensitive to the needs of others.

Sunday Mass is celebrated at 9.30 each week and also livestreamed from our Facebook page

Daily Mass continues to be offered.
