The Circuit covers some five hundred square miles of rural mid Suffolk, stretching from Needham Market in the east, taking in Stowmarket as you travel west, across to the Cathedral town of Bury St Edmunds and then down to Sudbury. Delightful, picturesque villages can be found on the minor roads throughout the area which makes travelling through the countryside a pleasure. Ten churches make up the Circuit, one of which, Christchurch in Needham Market, is a united URC/ Methodist congregation. From large town centre churches to smaller village chapels the Circuit seeks to give expression to our calling as worshipping, serving, outward looking, and caring communities.
The Superintendent Minister of the Circuit is Revd Deborah Borda.
