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 daily for private prayer between 11.00 and 4.00 pm. Social distancing and hygiene requirements are in place.

Daily Mass will continue to be offered, but sadly this will have to take place outside opening times.

Sunday Mass is now livestreamed just before 9.30 am from our new Facebook page:


"The parish of St Mary the Virgin, Mendlesham 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 Officers (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."
