There are three centres of Christian worship in Eye and a Roman Catholic church in nearby Diss. We’re particularly interested in hearing from non-Christian communities who may want to promote what they do in this section and from people who have information they may want to share in the features. This can be anything from news and events of interest to your congregation (and beyond), or historical and spiritual musings. Please just Let Us Know.
There’s always a lot going on in the Eye spiritual community. Why not look at the features below to see what’s happening right now?
