Churches Together is an affiliation of Christian Churches of all denominations, in town and village churches in and around Bury St. Edmunds.

Our next big event is planned to be a Summer Celebration in the 

Abbey Gardens on the afternoon of Sunday 8th August.

1.30 pm – 4.15 pm.

All the churches, as well as individuals, are invited to bring a picnic to have on the grass near the ‘Dovecote’ (to the left of the play area as you approach through the gardens from the Abbeygate).

There will be a stage, and some churches will have a music slot to sing and play including some worship songs, and there is still some space in the programme.

This will be an opportunity to hear various styles of worship, and a children’s show. This will be from 1.30 pm until 3.30 pm.

At 3.30 pm we shall have a joint ‘Songs of Praise’ service with a choice of hymns/songs from different churches, to finish by 4.15. pm.

All churches are welcome to bring gazebos (in case of heat or showers), your own church banner or sign. 

Of course, everyone can use the café to get tea/ice creams, and the public toilets are nearby.

We have much “more in common than divides us” and this is an opportunity to have a united Summer Celebration, to share God’s love for all.

Churches Together in Bury St. Edmunds and District involves churches across our town and up to a 12-mile radius. We are 50 individual churches altogether, of most Christian denominations (listed on our web-site).
