Felix of Burgundy is remembered today. Brought by Sigebert when he returned from exile to assume the throne of East Anglia in 613, Felix successfully Christianised the kingdom, including founding a monastery at Soham.

In religious terms, East Anglia today is more like it was in the 7th Century than the 19th. It’s time we looked more to a 7th Century model of church, ministry and evangelism than the one we inherited from the Victorians.

This depiction of Felix is in the porch of St. John’s church, Little Wilbraham, Cambridgeshire.
