Bury St. Edmunds (14/3)






"The Circuit's Mission is to live and share the Good News of God's Love in Christ" 

The Circuit covers some five hundred square miles of rural mid Suffolk, stretching from Needham Market in the east, taking in Stowmarket as you travel west, across to the Cathedral town of Bury St Edmunds and then down to Sudbury. Delightful, picturesque villages can be found on the minor roads throughout the area which makes travelling through the countryside a pleasure. Ten churches make up the Circuit, one of which, Christchurch in Needham Market, is a united URC/ Methodist congregation. From large town centre churches to smaller village chapels the Circuit seeks to give expression to our calling as worshipping, serving, outward looking, and caring communities.

The Superintendent Minister of the Circuit is Revd Deborah Borda.

The Circuit has its own website http://www.burystedmundsmethodistcircuit.org.uk

The Circuit Administrator is Adrian Romano.

Owing to the current coronavirus situation, all Sunday services and other activities taking place in our Circuit churches have been suspended in accordance with guidelines from the Connexion.

However, we will be producing a weekly newsletter (see below), which you can click on and download.  


It is important that, as a Circuit, we can continue to meet and worship together as members of the body of Christ.

In addition, we are producing a weekly worship sheet for everybody.  We hope that you will all use it on a Sunday morning at 10:30am, so that as a Circuit we will be worshipping together.  We can therefore draw on the strength of that knowledge as we hold the current situation in prayer.  In time we will look to recording or live streaming.  All are Welcome to join us in worship using these resources in your own homes.  Please click on the link to download for your own use.


This Sunday is Palm Sunday, when we remember the events beginning with Jesus' Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem riding on a donkey, leading up to the Last Supper and Christ's betrayal by Judas Iscariot and his trial by Pontius Pilate and the drama of the crucifixion on Good Friday.  During Holy Week, we will be following a series of mediations which you are invited to download and use for yourselves.
