St Peter & St Paul Church with St Edmund
Tomorrow, 5th July, we will be holding a service of Holy Communion at Hoxne church at 9.30 am for the first time since March.
(All welcome, unless they or their family have symptoms of Covid 19, in which case they should stay at home). So it's a good time
to remember that our own St Edmund is patron saint of pandemics, as well as of Hoxne church.
all the best, Eleanor, Hoxne Benefice

Facemasks – Members of Hoxne Church have been making facemasks to raise funds for The Children’s Society and for Hoxne Church. The masks are available to buy at The Hoxne Village Shop and at The Swan Public House.
Alternatively, please email me at email@example.com.
All donations would be gratefully received - a guideline suggestion is £3.00 per mask, but an amount you are able to give would be greatly appreciated.
The Children’s Society is involved in outreach and housing for homeless children plus research into social issues, and, has been doing a huge amount both locally and nationally during the Coronavirus Pandemic. They have a centre in Norwich.
Thank you for your support
Welcome to the Village of Hoxne
Hoxne is a beautiful old Suffolk village with a unique and truly ancient history. The first Hoxnians settled
here over 320,000 years ago alongside a lake and, a major geological period, the Hoxnian Interglacial
(375,000 to 425,000 years ago), was named after Hoxne. John Frere discovered the first human tools at the
site which had become the Hoxne brick pit; the Hoxne Hoard is one of the biggest discoveries of Roman
treasure in the UK much of which is on display at The British Museum. It is thought the martyrdom of King
(later Saint) Edmund took place at Hoxne in 869 AD, and until the 9th century, the ancient Bishop's seat of
East Anglia was at Hoxne before being moved to Norfolk. There are many interesting local walks and places
to see as well as much interesting architecture. The 13th century church of
St Peter and St Paul which stands at the top of a hill overlooking the village and The Swan Inn, a magnificent
15th century pub, are both worthy of a visit.
