Old Felixstowe is a growing residential parish for all ages, extending along the seafront from the town centre to Felixstowe Ferry. Grand Edwardian villas sit comfortably alongside modern housing developments that support our port and local businesses as well as our substantial retired community. The parish seeks to actively engage with all, from our playgroups and primary schools to the elderly and housebound, through initiatives including:
Clergy participation in school programmes and family activities in our churches
Nursing Home, hospital and private home visits, including Holy Communion
Community arts and heritage events in our churches
