Worship in Church

Sunday worship is at 10.30am, when the Euchirst will take place. 

Welcome to St Matthew’s Church

For the comfort and confidence of those around us,

please note the following;

  • A plate is available for your donations at the entrance to Church. We would prefer to keep cash donations to a minimum. Cheques should be made payable to St Matthew’s PCC. Donations can also be made to St Matthew’s by standing order or via our Just Giving page.
  • The Priest will continue to maintain current hygiene measures and will wear a face covering when administering Communion.

Wearing Masks in Church is now optional but still advisable. We would ask that everyone is mindful of those choosing to wear masks, especially when speaking face to face, singing or moving around the building.

Thank you for your support and understanding

Do you have a bill or a necessary expense that you just cannot meet?

Contact the Donnington Community Hub in Donnington Wood or St John’s Muxton Church Office for more details.

St Matthew’s PCC are aware of a number of issues surrounding our churchyard at the moment and we are sorry for the distress this is causing relatives and friends of the deceased.

Our Churchyard is maintained by volunteers alongside the Probation team who also work in other areas of Telford and Wrekin and who have a finite amount of time they can offer.
Understanding the way that the Church of England works means that monies to pay for local Churchyard maintenance has to be raised locally through donations given by people who use the Church for services etc.

It costs £2,200 to run St Matthew’s church each month and that is without being able to afford a Churchyard Maintenance Team.

All that being said we are working on a Churchyard Maintenance plan which we will publish in due course. This plan will hopefully enable us to work in partnership with you and others to restore this
beautiful churchyard to a place even better than it was before.
