The Church Today

Chuurch with St George flag

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
The Church has stood in the middle of the village for 550 years, with the tower reaching a hundred feet into the Suffolk sky. Ten bells ring out to call the parishioners to worship, and on festive days in the church or the nation's calendar, flags are flown. Seen here is the "Church Flag", with the red cross of St George, Patron Saint of England, and the shield bearing the arms of the Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich of which the Parish of All Saints, Stradbroke, in the Deanery of Hoxne, is part. This flag is used for church festivals, the Union Flag and the St George's Flag for national events.

The Church has a programme of services and events throughout the year, details of which can be found on the church notice board. Among the annual events that attract many visitors are the Art Exhibition and sale of pictures after Easter, the "Gardens Open" in the summer, and the Church Flower Festival. All Saints Church has gained a great reputation in Stradbroke for the its flower festivals which, each year, provide a colourful opportunity to celebrate an anniversary or to bring a subject of prayerful interest before many delighted eyes.

For further details regarding services, events and church information contact the Reverend Susan Loxton.
