About Us

The Church

St. John's Methodist Church Sudbury is part of the world wide Methodist Church, and is in the Bury St. Edmunds Circuit in East Anglia. There are twelve churches in the Circuit around the Bury St. Edmunds, Sudbury and Stowmarket areas. The Circuit has three ministers and a community worker based within the Stowmarket section.

The minister at St. John's is Rev Ruth Ridge. Working in the Circuit is Rev. Debbie Borda (Superintendent Minister).

We are pleased to be a Fairtrade church - promoting goods which offer a fair price to their producers in developing countries. We use Fairtrade tea and coffee on the church premises, and there is a Traidcraft stall twice a month after the Sunday morning service (please see the Services page within this site for more details).
St. John's takes an active part in Churches Together in Sudbury and District - for more information on Churches Together, have a look at the CTiS&D website - http://churchestogetherinsudbury.org.uk/
