Prayer Card

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.

Please be assured of our prayers at this time, and don’t hesitate to contact us if we can do anything at all to help. Stay safe, With every blessing, Rev’d Diane, And all at St John’s

The Gospel reading for Sunday 29th March 2020 is:
John 11:1-45


We are St John the Baptist,

The Parish Church of Needham Market with Badley.

During these strange times of Covid-19, we must confirm that sadly, our church building will be closed until further notice. Marriages and non-urgent Baptisms have also been postponed in line with Government legislation.

Please do remember though, that the Church is not a building – it is the people. We are the Church and we are very much still open for business!

Building Closed

Our Church has been serving the people of Needham Market and Badley for hundreds of years – through the Black Death, plagues, smallpox, Spanish Flu, HIV/AIDS, and now Coronavirus.

That’s what we will continue to do, in the name of Jesus.

If there is anything at all we can do to help you, whether you are a regular churchgoer or not, please don’t hesitate to contact us, through email or phone, and we will get back to you as soon as possible. In the meantime, please be assured of our prayers.

Stay safe,
With every blessing
Rev’d Diane,
and all the team at St John’s Church
