Community Coffee for All

at the church between 10.30am and 12.30pm on the second Saturday of most months.

Next time is on Saturday January 12, 2019

Rev David Rees has been appointed so we are now looking forward to managing together with the other 3 churches in Ipswich and East: Felixstowe; Castle Hill and Saxmundham. Also in close relations with both Christ Church Tacket Street and South Suffolk churches beyond.

We hope to call a second Minister to the Ipswich & East area of the South Suffolk Area Partnership rather than to any specific church like ours as we know that there is a shortage of Ministers and money to pay them. If you are a URC Minister and also interested in taking up this unique challenge, seek out the Moderator of the Eastern Synod for more information.

Contact Minister

St John’s serves the area of East Ipswich but many members of our congregation come from outside this immediate area.

Our vision is for a friendly, caring church, serving the local community and the wider world, embracing all age groups and strengthening people in their faith in

Jesus Christ and their love for other people.

Our Twitter account will keep you up to date.
