708 churches on the site so far: entries are now being regularly updated.

This list is in month-by-month chronological order.

Updates are announced first at X/Twitter and then on this page within a few days.

I've visited every Anglican and Catholic church in Suffolk, as well as some of other denominations,
and they all have an entry on this site. I am now gradually revisiting them all. To read the site more
or less in the order in which I visited the churches, start at the bottom and work your way up.

Be aware that some churches appear in this list more than once, if a revisit and a rewrite happened.
Only the latest version of the entry is linked to. Older versions may sometimes be found on
the internet archive.
