St Edmundsbury and Ipswich
We are an ancient village church which was extended and rebuilt during Victorian times.
Today we find ourselves in the middle of several busy housing estates in North West Ipswich and also hold services at The Church of the Ascension in Castle Hill.
On Summer evenings we enjoy Evensong at our country church at Akenham as well as keeping the Agriculatural FEsiotvals of the Churc year there.
The Church of the Ascension is part of the Parish of Whitton with Thurleston and Akenham. Built at the same time as the Castle Hill Estate it is a multi-purpose building which serves as both Church and Community Centre. Many community and youth groups use it during the week besides it being used for worship on Sunday and Wednesday mornings.
