Aldeburgh Parish Church looks out to sea. It is home to a magnificent window in memory of Benjamin Britten and is the home church of the famous Aldeburgh Festival. Here too Elizabeth Garrett Anderson, the first woman doctor and first female mayor in Britain, worshipped. Aldeburgh is a lively community and our parish church reflects that. Please check regularly as our services reflect not only the church’s year but events special to Aldeburgh. In February, for instance, we have our Seafarer’s service, in June the opening service of the Aldeburgh Festival, and in August the open air Carnival Service. At Easter, Pentecost, Harvest and Christmas our worship is especially rich in meaning.
Here you will find space and beauty, a lively faith, and a deep sense of the presence of God.
