Ipsden Church Friends

Ipsden Friends has been set up to reach out to those across the world, whether churchgoers or not, for whom Ipsden has a special place in their hearts, through having friends, relatives or personal experience of being born, baptized, married, lived or buried here. The aim is to open up and develop Ipsden church and churchyard for the benefit of the community.

Ipsden Friends is in the process of developing their own, dedicated website. A link will appear here as soon as the website becomes ‘live’.
