WELCOMEPhoto Flatford Mill Bobby Allen This is the new website for the SSAP and is intended as a communication hub which is not just for the members and friends of the 21 churches. It is also as a window for anyone into what it might feel like to be part of the URC based in South Suffolk, wherever you are in the world. However, there is no substitute for being part of the community so please join us for worship in any of the 21 churches or chapels! The site will only succeed in achieving that aim if the content and information comes from the churches and people voice what they would like to see and what they do not like. Please contact the webmaster (me!) to help develop this site. Contact webmaster click here.Or complete the form on the contact us page.What is going on in the SSAP? See the web diary
