Church of England Diocese of St.Edmundsbury & Ipswich Debenham

Debenham, St Mary Magdalene

Welcome to St Mary Magdalene church, Debenham. We are a rural parish church in the middle of the village with a congregation of about 40 people on Sundays. Once a month we have "[email protected]", a relaxed family-friendly service for the young and not so young, groups and individuals which starts with breakfast at 9.30am and the service continues at 10am. The other Sundays celebrate communion services (Common Worship style, with hymns). If there's a fifth Sunday in the month it will be a Benefice Service, held at one of our sister parishes on our family of seven parishes.

We are committed to our church being a safe and welcoming place for all peoples. If you have any safeguarding concerns or questions, please contact our Parish Safeguarding Officer, David Carruthers on 01728 860508 [email protected], or the Rector, Revd Susan Bates on 01728 860222 [email protected] Further information can be found at
