With a church in every village throughout Suffolk much of our presence is in rural locations. Our churches can be a hub, offering a central building in our communities, sometimes the only community building in rural and isolated areas.

Rural Coffee Caravan
The Rural Coffee Caravan started up in 2003 to tackle rural isolation and promote community spirit. The Rural Coffee Caravan delivers information and friendship across Suffolk. The Rural Coffee Caravan exists to help rurally isolated people in Suffolk access services and information to improve their lives, health and wellbeing, and to bring people together, empowering and strengthening rural communities.
