Church History


Designed by the great Victorian architect Sir Gilbert Scott and built in 1845, St Matthew’s church contains some interesting historical features, including beautiful stained glass windows and a decorated ceiling at the East end.


There have been many  changes over the years both within the building and in the local area, however,  St Matthew’s remains a constant presence in a changing community, a reminder of  the changeless love of God for each of us.
