St. Mary's East Ruston is a closed Church. One service is still held in the church itself every year – a 'Carols by Candlelight' service at Christmastime. The Churchyard is still open, so burials are allowed.
A path has been laid from the main road through the north side of the Church and into the "new" burial ground. This path continues into East Ruston Old Vicarage Gardens. The church is open during the opening times of the gardens.
We have a regular service at 4pm on the 4th Sunday of the month, held in East Ruston Village Hall with refreshments afterwards. This service is held every month except December, when the Carol Service is held in church.
The church does not have a specific postcode but is situated on the B1159 close to the crossroads for the Old Vicarage Gardens, whose postcode is NR12 9HN.
