Our Benefice consists of the four small rural parishes of Higham, Holton St Mary, Raydon and Stratford St Mary, on the south-eastern Suffolk/Essex border, in beautiful Constable country, bounded by the rivers Stour and Brett.  We are in the Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich, and in the Deanery of Hadleigh.

Our challenge, our mission, and our vision is 'Telling the story.  Inviting others. Blessing the world.'

Please explore the pages on our churches, our services and our events, and join us whenever you can.  We promise to give you a warm welcome.


We are running a Lent Course based on 'On The Third Day' (York Courses), every Thursday afternoon in Lent (except for Maundy Thursday) from 2.30-4 p.m. in Stratford St Mary.  All are welcome, so if you would like to come, even if you haven't been before, please contact Revd Rosalind (details to the right of this page).
