Welcome to Pakefield Parish Church in Lowestoft, Suffolk.

What is Pakefield Church?

We are a Christian family who worship God, care for one another and the local community
and reach out to encourage others to know Jesus and his love.


All Saints’ and St Margaret’s Church, Pakefield is a warm and friendly Church of England church situated on the cliff top of Britain’s most easterly town. From well attended Sunday services by people of all ages, through to weddings, baptisms and lots of other groups, there is something for everyone here!
