You do not need to be a Christian to attend our events. The Fellowship is also open to retired staff, partners and councillors.

We've branches that meet weekly in

  • Endeavour House, Ipswich
  • West Suffolk House, Bury St Edmunds

We are keen to support staff across the county which can be done by emailing information about events and prayer requests. Staff can send in prayer requests which will be circulated if requested.

Groups could be set up in any of our offices if staff were willing/able to support it. We are grateful to those churches and organisations who are guest speakers at events and meetings.


Through out the year, we mark Christian festivals and other opportunities for sharing God’s love in practice. We endeavour to work closely with our Borough and District Council Christian colleagues where possible – for example the West Suffolk House group is jointly with St Edmundsbury Borough Council.
