Long Melford URC

30 March 2021 No Comment

We are sad to announce that on 20th March, Long Melford United Reformed Church was formally closed by resolution passed by the Eastern Synod of the United Reformed Church. This decision has been made in consultation with the church membership. As many members are struggling with health issues and unable to continue the burdens of running the building and due to increasing pressures on maintenance, it was felt that now was the time to cease this witness in Long Melford.  There will be no closing service due to COVID restrictions and the fact that many members are no longer able to attend, but please do hold the congregation in your prayers and give thanks for the ministry and witness that the chapel has given in the village for many years.

We also pray for the minister Elaine Colchin as she moves to a new ministry in London.
