Welcome to St Matthew’s Church.
Following Jesus, serving one another, reaching out in God’s love.
We are sad that the Church building must remain closed at the moment.
These are challenging times. So much has changed in the last few weeks and life can feel disorientating and confusing. Separated from people we love, missing familiar routines, being restricted in where we can go and what we can do – all this is hard.
The words of this song have stayed with me this week, echoing Gods’ promise that wherever we are, whatever we are facing, God is with us; Don't be afraid, my love is stronger, My love is stronger than your fear.
Don't be afraid, my love is stronger, and I have promised to be always near.
John Bell Iona Community
The Church building is closed but the Church community is still here and still active. We continue to worship God, to pray and to reach out to one another wherever we are. Look on our Prayer page for ideas to help you pray at home. We’ll be praying with you. And if there is someone, or something you would like us to pray for, please email me. You can do this via the contacts page.
May you know
the presence of God
the peace of God
the love of God
with you this day and everyday.
