The church has been closed throughout the lockdown period only opening for private prayer in July on Wednesdays between 9am and 11am.  

We are now delighted to be able to "open the doors" further but recognising that many of our church family will still not be able to attend we will also be live streaming the services (see below). These are the arangements for the next few weeks. Please do join us::.

The service pattern from September.

Our Youth and Children’s work will begin again in a modified form. Parents will be receiving a letter from Kate Smith and Naomi Shaw giving details about how and when this will happen.

For all of our church family, Sunday services will revert to this pattern. If you would like more information abiut the precautions we are taking to ensure a safe environment please please follow this link to the COVID 19 page.

Online service

The on-line provision will continue, but as a Livestream from the service in church. Please follow this link for the live steam: St Matthew's YouTube Channel. 

Please be patient with us as the video quality may be variable the first week while we wait for a new church broadband to be installed, hopefully by next week.
 

If you are at all concerned about being filmed, please advise the Welcomers who will seat you somewhere where there’s no risk of this.
