Welcome to St Matthew’s Church.
Following Jesus, serving one another, reaching out in God’s love.
Whether you are a regular visitor to this website, or have just discovered us, welcome.
As lockdown restrictions are eased, planned maintenance work on the Church building and in the Churchyard can now be carried out.
We are delighted that the Community Payback Team are able to resume work next month. They will be cutting the grass on July 7th ,8th and 11th. Thank you to the local volunteers who have kept paths mown during lockdown - we are really grateful.
Thank you too, to visitors who have been taking dead flowers and wrappings away with them; please continue to do this.
Many people do not realise that the Church does not receive grants towards regular maintenance of the building or the Churchyard. We depend on your generosity to do this.
To find out how you can make a donation to St Matthew’s, follow the Just Giving link on this page.
The Church council meets on July 6th to review the latest guidance in preparation for re-opening the building. At this point, no date has been agreed. Please check the website regularly for updates.
If you would like to join our services online and are not on our regular mailing list, please contact Rev'd Paula. You will also find Bible readings and prayers for each day here and Sunday Bible readings and reflections here. Other useful resources and contacts can be found on the News page.
May God continue to bless you and to hold you in his love and care.
