Welcome to Old Felixstowe Parish Churches website. We are an Anglican Church on the coast seeking to offer a warm and welcoming space where we learn about Jesus and grow together.

Our vision states that we seek to live, show and tell of the love of God: becoming like Jesus and drawing others to Him - this is still the case and though we may now do this in a very different way our calling to our community remains the same.

Vicar of Old Felixstowe

I’m sitting at my computer on Sunday afternoon after the most amazing weekend of celebrations, beginning with being ordained Priest at St Edmundsbury Cathedral on Saturday 2nd July and ending with a celebratory lunch with friends old and new after presiding at communion for the first time.

In what way is the church like a helicopter? Sometimes people are nervous about getting too close in case they get sucked into the rotas!

As with all good jokes, it’s funny because there’s an element of truth in it! But vocation and calling are about more than finding willing workers for the enormous list of jobs that an active church manages to generate – vocation is not about what you do but who you are. Roles and jobs may come out of discovering a vocation, but the starting place is to ask the question of God and yourself: who are you calling me to be?

This last week has seen the outbreak of war with Russia invading the Ukraine. This is a time when so much seems uncertain and I don’t know about you but I feel confused and helpless. There is so much I don’t understand but I know we are called to pray. To cry out to God for peace and justice – I pray that the hearts of those set on war will be changed – I pray that there will be a miracle.
