You could also just give them a call

I have found when contacting churches, the easiest thing to do is speak to them in person. Some 3 years later and am still awaiting replies from emails sent to various churches.

Often the people who deal with 'family history' enquiries are the 'helpers' who may not always have access to a/the church computer. :-)
