The Benefice of Debenham and Helmingham

Welcome.

We are a benefice of seven parishes. Six small villages or hamlets, each with a church building, gather round the larger village of Debenham. Debenham has a population of about 2500 people, schools, shops, cafes, a pub, and a leisure centre.

Other denominations which have a presence in the the villages are the URC, Baptists and a free church called The Forge. We share a happy relationship in Christ.

As a Benefice we are prayerfully trying to hear the voice of God as we are called to look to our future pattern of Christian worship and presence.

We have a rich heritage. Six of the churches are from Medieval times and Debenham shows signs of Saxon building. So worship and pastoral care have been a blessing for centuries in our parishes.

We are pleased to announce that the church is now open daily.

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 david.j.carruthers@btinternet.com, or the Rector, Revd Susan Bates on 01728 860222 revsusanbates@icloud.com.
