St Mary

Welcome to St Mary's Witnesham.
We're a friendly group of people who get together every week in our lovely parish church for the Sunday service at 10.00. On the 1st and 3rd Sundays it's Morning Worship, and on the 2nd and 4th Sundays it's a Communion service. If there's a 5th Sunday in the month, check the events page to see where and what it is - it moves around between Witnesham, Tuddenham and Westerfield!

Tea, coffee and squash are available afterwards, and you're welcome to stay and chat, or trundle off to enjoy the rest of your day.

Mid-week prayers
Not everyone can or wants to do, church on Sunday. So there's a 30 minute more informal service at 9.30am on Tuesdays

We're online too!
Have a look round the church and check out the facebook page and website.

What's on

Morning Worship

Every First, Third Sunday at for 45 mins
St Mary
St Mary, Church Lane Witnesham Ipswich, IP6 9JD, United Kingdom

This is a service without communion. It lasts about 45 minutes and has hymns, Bible readings, a sermon (which lasts about 10 minutes) and prayers. Everything is set out in a service booklet so you’ll know when to stand or sit; when to listen and when to join in.
Our hymns are a mixture of modern and traditional, using hymn books and projected words.
As with all our services, everyone, whatever their age, is very welcome; it’s quite relaxed and no-one will put any pressure on you to do or say anything


Thank-you for your donation, however large or small. We promise it will make a big difference.
