Welcome to the website for the churches of Hadleigh, Layham & Shelley Benefice!
In line with guidance from the Archbishops, all services & events are currently suspended and the church is closed.
Please note that the Benefice Office is still manned but is closed to personal callers and visitors.
Keep us, good Lord, under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious, be with those who care for the sick,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may find comfort knowing that nothing can separate us
from your love in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Our purpose is to worship God, develop Christian faith and reveal God's love to the whole community.
We are a church that is being challenged by God to make a real difference in the community by the way in which we communicate the gospel in an ever-evolving culture. Hadleigh is privileged to have a rich history, which has helped to develop Christian worship not only in this area but in the Anglican Church world-wide. Our worship and mission is shaped by this rich and varied tradition, and we are passionate about being a church to which everyone can belong and in which everyone is welcome.
