St George's, Shimpling

St George's, Shimpling is in the Chadbrook Benefice in South Suffolk along with Alpheton, Long Melford and (soon) Lawshall.

There are monthly 9am services in this charming rural church (third sunday) and in Alpheton church (first sunday), and a monthly midweek service in neighbouring Lawshall. There is also our informal 4 o'clock Community which holds family friendly services at Lawshall at 4pm (second sunday) and at other locations around our Benefice on other Sundays.

There is a Benefice livestream service broadcast every Sunday from Long Melford at 10.30am which can be accessed here.

We would love you to join our services - if you have any questions please contact our administrator Vicky who can be contacted at [email protected] or call the Rector on 01787 301 845.
