Forge Thurston

Gathering together each Sunday at 4pm Plan a Visit


Thurston Community College
Thurston, Bury St Edmunds,
Suffolk, IP31 3PB

Every Sunday afternoon at 4:00pm we meet together in Thurston with specific environments for kids, young people and adults. Our service lasts for an hour, but we would recommend arriving early to grab a drink and have a chat. 

Thurston is the second Forge Community Church location, the first multi-site venture for the church and was launched on Sunday April 20th 2014.

On arrival our Meet & Greet team will direct you into the building from the car park. As you’re walking to the building, our Welcome team will meet you and can answer any questions, or guide you to any of our age specific venues.

We’re a friendly bunch, and we’d love to get to know you! 



In the heart of Thurston, at a crossroad between Ixworth Road and Norton Road you’ll find Thurston Community College.

There is ample parking at the front of venue, please enter via the front entrance/reception. Disabled spaces are available (if in doubt please speak to a member of the car park team). 

Thurston has a train station, which is a five minute walk from the Community College.


Jonny Abbott

My name is Jonny and I’m the Location Leader at Forge Thurston. I’ve been on staff since 2015; I’m bad at golf, good at drinking coffee and I’m the current holder the Abbott family Christmas day quiz trophy (it’s kinda of big deal). I love being part of The Forge in Thurston and am excited about the increasing role we get to play in our local community. Get in touch, I’d love to hear from you.
