Fornham All Saints
Standing proudly at the head of the village green, the parish church of All Saints has been at the centre of village life for more than 700 years. It has seen many changes and many people. It has seen battles fought, and bloodshed. It saw monks from the great abbey at Bury St Edmunds come to lead worship. It saw both the changes of the Reformation, and the turbulence of the English Civil War.
Now a Grade 1 listed building, floodlit to stunning effect during winter months, church facilities and activities have developed to begin meeting the needs of today. The church is wheelchair accessible and open to visitors all year round. During a variety of services and events, we have the use of an accessible WC, baby-changer, and kitchenette.
Outreach includes Songs of Praise and Afternoon Tea at nearby Thingoe Lodge, home communions, along with the active participation of the church community in village events.
The church stands as a reminder to the people of Fornham All Saints and those who pass by or enter in that God loves each one of us and is ready, like the father of the prodigal son, to welcome us home with open arms.
