We are pleased to announce that the Parish Church of St. John the Baptist in Needham Market, Suffolk, has received a confirmed grant of £227,800 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for its roof repair project. Please read the following: Needham Market's Medieval Masterpiece Wins National Lottery Support

During the last few years many people have contributed, with many events raising funds to repair the beautiful medieval church roof. This has included an auction, evaluation day, musical events, coffee mornings, produce stalls. Many donations have been made from local and country wide organisations. The roof repair work has now been completed (Sept 2018). The church is now reopened and all are welcome to visit, the church is open in the day.

Please join us for our Produce Stalls outside the church, 9-11am, the first Saturday of each month between April and October we have a stall which sells local produce, plants, books, and many cakes, scones, jams etc. Please do help support the monthly stalls which are very popular and there is always more demand than the quantity of cakes! Last year these stalls alone raised more than £1000 for church funds. On the same mornings we run a Coffee Morning from 9.30 - 11.30am. All funds from the Coffee Mornings go to church general funds. 

Please also join us in the ARK church hall on King Williams Street for Lent Soup Lunch. This event is part of our Charitable giving as all the money raised is donated to St Edmundsbury & Ipswich link Diocese in Kagera in aid of the Pastors Children's Fund.

Dates of produce stalls and lent lunches and fund raising events will be regularly updated in the weekly Pew Sheet.

Thank you for all those who have given of in time, financial support and many other ways to support the repair of our roof. Also to the EADT and ITV Anglia News and BBC Radio Suffolk who have helped us share the news of our Roof Fund Raising campaign.
