Alpheton, St Peter & St Paul

St Peter & St Paul, Alpheton is in the Chadbrook Benefice in South Suffolk along with Shimpling, Long Melford and (soon) Lawshall.

There are monthly 9am services in this beautiful rural church (first sunday) and in Shimpling church (third 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.
