The Cathedral of the Marshes
A church building has stood in Blythburgh for a thousand years witnessing to the love of God and the faith of His people. It is a magnificent building which can be seen rising out from the Blyth estuary — sometimes affectionately called ‘The Cathedral of the Marshes’.
Holy Trinity Blythburgh has a small worshipping community who warmly welcome visitors to its services, for private reflection and prayer, to listen to inspiring music, or just to marvel at the wonderful angel roof.
The church has wonderful acoustics and is often used for concerts, and its light and airy space is used for art exhibitions. It is also a well used community space.
The church is open every day of the year from 9am to 6pm (or dusk if earlier). There is plenty of parking in our car park adjacent to the church.
We take safeguarding seriously and the Parochial Church Council has adopted the Church of England's national policy 'Promoting a Safer Church'. For more information see www.cofesuffolk.org/safeguarding.
For any local concerns, our Parish Safeguarding Officer is Jenny Allen who can be contacted by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or telephone (01502 478314).
