Suffolk Show – 31st May And 1st June
St Eds & Ips Diocese is excited to be hosting a stand at the Suffolk Show. After two years of cancellations this show should be the best yet, with the added benefit of being the two days before the Jubilee weekend which is sure to increase its profile. We will be offering complimentary tea, coffee and cakes in a marquee furnished with comfy seating, cushions and sofas. Amongst the entertainment are a puppet show and messy church crafts for children, free face painting and youth arcade games. At 2.30pm each day, the marquee will erupt in song – with a chorus of popular hymns. Do come along to see us and join in.
