at St. Mary’s Horncastle


Following both government and Church of England statements released on 17 March 2020, we will be suspending ALL gatherings including home groups, alpha courses and public worship services at all of our churches within the Southwold’s Group.

This is a turbulent time for us as both as a nation and individuals. It is our prayer that in the midst of this we will find our hope and strength in Christ and be channels of care and compassion to those around us.
