Welcome to St Matthew's Church!

St Matthew's is an Anglican (Church of England) church about half a mile south of the city centre in Oxford.

Note: Because of the coronavirus, the church building is now closed.

Our vicar, and some of the church team, are broadcasting, on Facebook, some worship at 10:30 on Sundays. You can access the Facebook page by clicking the Facebook symbol on the right or clicking on this link. These are left as videos on the page.

For our young people we have on line:

Sundays: Ignite will be meeting virtually at 11:30am every Sunday via zoom. Here they enjoy a catch up and games!
Tuesdays/Thursdays: Naomi also sends an email containing 5min video's of faith based talks and short video's of silly shenanigans.
Online presence: There is also a facebook page for Ignite that has content such as relative memes/jokes, faith based talks & prayer requests.
If your child would like to be a part of any of the above or included in the email chain to receive the short video's then please email our Youth Worker, Naomi Shaw on st.matzyouthworker@gmail.com

Although all meetings have had to stop, home groups are finding other ways to meet and support each other through the COVID 19 crisis, including meeting online.

Home Groups meet in the homes of church members around the city - some weekly, some fortnightly - on either Tuesday or Wednesday evenings.  Each group decides its own programme, which may include Bible study, discussion topics, shared meals and prayer.  The groups aim to provide friendship and support in a Christian context and are a great way to get to know other church members.

We keep a Community Emergency Food box which is now situated on the side tables by the Church Kitchen; suitable goods are always welcome.
