We are already missing our Alpheton and Shimpling church services but you will all understand the reason why this action has been taken.
So that we can continue to worship and keep in touch with one another and to enable church to continue please join our Services which are being livestreamed at 10.30am every Sunday. You can find the Services on the Long Melford Church website at www.longmelfordchurch.com and clicking on the words “Long Melford Church” at the top of the Facebook section.
We appreciate that keeping the church going financially may not be top of your priority list at the moment. Nevertheless, we must still support the costs of our ministry and pay our bills and therefore we would like to request that if you normally put your offering on the plate, whether you would consider donating to us in a different way?
Donations could be made directly into our bank account if you are able to do so, or by standing order: either would help us maintain our regular income. We also welcome donations made by cheque but this may be difficult to process at the moment. Our bank details are :- Alpheton and Shimplingthorne PCC; Sort Code 60-04-16; Account No 56293658. Cheques can be sent to our treasurer Sue Fahie-Wilson at Chiltern House Shimpling. Alternatively, there is now a telephone service to set up a direct debit, for those wishing to make a regular donation. Please contact Sue for more details (email@example.com ; 01284 827243)
Be assured that whatever you are able to give during these difficult times will be put to good use and greatly appreciated by all at Alpheton & Shimpling. Of course, this would be only after considering your own needs, which may have changed in the current situation.
Wishing you all the best, keep well and keep safe. Remember that we are here to help and support you.
Blessings and prayers
