Wickhambrook Methodist Church, Thorns Corner,
Wickhambrook, CB8 8XW
The Methodist Church is situated on the crossroads adjacent to the B1063, opposite the village shop and close to the village primary school.
It is some 10 miles from Newmarket and a similar distance from Haverhill, the nearest towns. The Methodist Church was built in 1850 and consists of an entrance foyer which leads in to the main church; this is over looked by a balcony area above. Attached to the main area is a small school room with a kitchen and two toilets. The village has two further churches- The URC and the parish Church of All Saints. The main building retains its character with its original wooden pews and pulpit. It is a welcoming and loving Church, with a small but dedicated congregation, where faithful and loving Christian fellowship happens each week.
