TOGETHER for Ipswich

Together for Ipswich is here to provide a communication vehicle between the Civic Authorities, particularly the Local Authority, and the Christian churches, charities and people in Ipswich. This will enable a better understanding of how local policy impacts on ordinary people, and a way to explore shared initiatives and effective partnership.

More About Us


In November, Together for Ipswich partnered with DWP Ipswich Jobcentre to host a Ukrainian Job Fair.  The Ukrainian community have a fabulous work ethic, are 90% women, many of whom have children at school, and consequently the major Job Fairs in town didn't really meet our Ukrainian friends' needs.

When we approached them, Ipswich Jobcentre jumped at the idea of us working together to host a specific Ukrainian Job Fair, and with hundreds of jobs available from a dozen different employers and sectors, and 85 Ukrainians attending, there was a real buzz throughout the event.

We have yet to quantify how many jobs were secured through this event, either directly or indirectly, but the Ukrainian Job Fair has been a huge step forward for the establishing of the Ukrainian community in Ipswich and surrounds.

Winter Warmth Scheme

There is a cost-of-living crisis in the UK resulting in unprecedented pressures on people already in poverty, and this winter despite the support given by Government, thousands of people in Ipswich will be forced to make tough decisions about when and what they eat, what they can do in life, and when they can afford to heat their home.

Together for Ipswich wants to do more to help working through a network of local Churches, charities and community groups.

Cataloguing practical help

We are building a searchable online database of all the ways Churches and Christian Charities can help and support people in need. With refugees starting to arrive in Ipswich, there has never been a better time to ensure we publicise all the great work going on in the town.

Review the site and make sure your programmes are listed.

Father we thank you.

That you have brought us, Your Church in Ipswich, together at this time, uniting us in prayer and calling us to serve You as Your Body here.

Thank you that in the Bible we see the power of the Holy Spirit, the peace of Jesus, and the Blessing of the Father, released when your disciples are together. (John 20:19; Acts 2:1; Psalm 133)

Thank you that, gathering your disciples together, you gave them power and authority to go in your name and proclaim the kingdom, to bring healing and restoration, with your promise of protection. (Luke 9:1; Luke 10:19)

Thank you that we are being built together as members of One Body; that you are growing us in love for each other and for this place where you have called us to pray and work. (Eph 2:22; Eph 3:6; Eph 4:16;)

Send us out in the power of your Holy Spirit.  

Make us truly one in heart and mind.

Teach us to pray;

That together we might serve you in humility and obedience, each playing our part, to see Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, lives transformed, and Ipswich alive in the plans and purposes you have for her. (Jeremiah 29:7,11; Phil 2:1-8; Matthew 6:10)
