About Church & Gooderham

A small, distinguished team of craftsmen with fine skills

Church & Gooderham is a bespoke joinery business in the heart of Suffolk, established by expert craftsman, Marcus Church. Having worked as a joiner for many years, Marcus is highly experienced in producing bespoke joinery, and formed the business to fulfil his passion for purpose-built, made-to-order joinery.

Church & Gooderham are part of the CQMS safety scheme, ensuring all work is carried out following the latest health and safety regulations.

Everything at Church & Gooderham is centred around your needs, made entirely to your project requirements. Marcus goes to the greatest of lengths to deliver exactly what you’re looking for; using a winning combination of traditional and contemporary joinery methods to deliver a personalised solution of the finest quality for your home or business.

Church & Gooderham are also established members of the British Woodworking Foundation, the Federation of Master Builders and Accoya.

We never started our business to provide modular units and mass-produced homewares for customers. We’re passionate about purpose-built joinery that’s hand-made right here in our workshop by joiners of the finest skill. Marcus originally started out as a conventional joiner, but his experience now spans both traditional and contemporary designs, working with wood, metals, glass and even the latest resins and plastics, giving customers the ability to choose the right materials to suit their taste best.

At Church & Gooderham our expertly-honed skills and craftsmanship have helped create some fantastic bespoke joinery solutions over the years. Even now, we firmly believe nothing matches the natural beauty of wood. We’re a small but distinguished team that loves what we do. If you live in Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire or Essex and you’re seeking a personalised joinery solution to enhance the enjoyment of your home, we can hand-craft the character and personality you crave.

Here’s what some of our customers have to say about us…….

We commissioned Church and Gooderham to build a bespoke oak staircase. It was a challenging project, which was completed to an extremely high standard by the Church and Gooderham team with fantastic workmanship throughout. The staircase is a sturdy, safe, and great-looking addition to our home.

S. Seddon

Having now had both our new front doors and a set of internal folding doors installed, I just wanted to take this opportunity to say that we are very happy with the delivered result and to thank everyone involved.
It has been a pleasure dealing with your firm, from the point of first estimation, to the fitting of the final product and the support from Debbie and your administrative staff.
Should we have need of further similar product, we shall return immediately to you and recommend the firm highly to others,

Mr Hardy

We can’t thank Marcus and his wonderful team enough for our amazing bespoke windows, doors, porch, bi-folds and kitchen. It was a big project, over several years and their support, guidance and patience was second to none. We are so thrilled with the end result. It was a real pleasure to work with them and I would highly recommend them.

V. Lawrence

Fantastic work on our last 2 houses, including skirting boards, front doors, interior doors and most recently a glass and oak staircase. Attention to detail, cleanliness and knowledgeable – I would highly recommend.

P. Gray

Having trawled the net for staircase builder and designs, we contacted Church and Gooderham Ltd for a quotation. They were very courteous and efficient and the cost was within our budget. They delivered on time and the quality of workmanship was second to none. Thank you

J. Harteveldt

Church & Gooderham were able to provide a very competitive quote for our new custom-made front door. Given the current delay issues with materials, they manufactured and fitted the door within a very reasonable timeframe. Very happy with the excellent quality of workmanship and courtesy of the fitters. Thank you for your service! Have already recommended to a friend.
