Church of England Diocese of St.Edmundsbury & Ipswich Kelsale with Carlton

HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh

10 Apr 2021, midnight

Following the death of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, we are aware that people may wish to come and pray in our churches. Due to COVID restrictions our churches are open for limited times only throughout the week.

Our churches are open at the following times for private prayer:

St John the Baptist, Saxmundham – Mondays 10am to Noon and Thursdays 2pm to 4pm

St Mary and St Peter, Kelsale – Sundays and Wednesdays 2pm to 4pm.

Under normal circumstances we would offer a Book of Condolences in which to write, however the Royal Family has asked that, given the public health situation, we do not offer these at this time. If you wish to send a message of condolence you can do so on the Church of England website which can be found at
