Join The Friends

The Friends of Ickworth Church are vital in helping us keep the building and churchyard open for all to enjoy.

The support received from the Friends of Ickworth Church is invaluable in allowing the church to remain open and in good working order, so it can be enjoyed by visitors every day of the year.

By becoming a Friend, you will be joining a group of individuals who are dedicated to supporting the church and its aims in delivering an excellent service to its visitors, and in helping to preserve the fabric of this magnificent building and its historic churchyard for future generations.
