Please note that, although the postal address of the church is Suffolk, we are in fact north of the river Waveney and therefore situated in Norfolk. The church is 1.5 miles north of Beccles, just off the A146 at its junction with the A143. Satnavs can use the postcode NR34 0ND.

Our Lady of Perpetual Succour is a private building, used as a Chapel of Ease to St Benet’s RC Church in nearby Beccles, by kind permission of its Trustees.

Our Lady of Perpetual Succour is kept locked outside Mass times. If you would like to visit at another time, please contact the Trustees to find a convenient moment: email with “Gillingham Catholic Church” in your subject line.

  • Plenty of parking is available along Church Road, just outside the church.
  • Please park considerately and do not block the footpath nearby.
  • A mobile ramp is available by arrangement for wheelchair users.
  • Please note that the church does not have any running water or sanitation.
