The earliest parts of the Church of All Saints’ date from the early 14th century, and were probably a rebuilding of an earlier church on the same site. The church has been maintained, beautified and handed down through many generations, and is regularly used today.

Regular services are held here and the church is available for baptisms, weddings and funerals. Please refer to the Diary and Contacts pages.

The beautiful octagonal stone font dates from the 14th century, and the church is home to several fine monuments.

The chancel wagon roof is embellished with fascinating medieval carvings. These carvings are extremely rare, some are possibly unique, and depict ordinary people, animals and mythical creatures.

We recently published a book detailing all the carvings, together with some fascinating information about these important medieval features. It created a good deal of academic interest and has needed to be updated and reprinted as the first edition sold out.

For a detailed account of the church building , see Simon Knott’s account: Simon Knott, a renowned enthusiast of Suffolk churches, has rated the church as number 18 in his list of his top 60 Suffolk churches.

Many of you will recently have heard the very welcome sound of the tenor bell being chimed from the church tower in Gazeley. It is over 70 years since this particular bell has sounded and indeed the bells and the wheels and frames that support them are in such poor condition that it is over 12 since any of them have been capable of being rung. The fact that one has now been brought back into regular use is thanks entirely to the generous and expert work of volunteers from the Suffolk Guild of Ringers and we are extremely grateful for their assistance.

The church is open for private prayer every day. Rev. Chris is available for support, but, for many people, finding God is a private matter. See:
