The Benefice of Debenham and Helmingham


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 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, or the Rector, Revd Susan Taylor on 01728 860222, email: Further information can be found at
