St Matthew's with Holy Trinity is an Anglican Parish Church which strives to embrace all opinions and offer the best we can of traditional and more modern worship. We are probably best described as ‘Liberal High Church'.

We welcome people of all ages to any of our Eucharists and for very small members there is a play area near the Font which is well equipped with toys and games.

On the FIRST SUNDAY of every month at 10:30 am we have a Family Service lasting about half an hour.

An open policy for Baptism and Marriage (under Anglican guidelines) means that if you wish to have your child baptised or to be married we would be delighted to hear from you. Please call Fr Mark whose details are on this web site and he will arrange to meet you.

There are large uniformed organisations for both boys and girls, who welcome enquiries about joining and are present on the first Sunday of the month at our Parade Service.

The Parish School, Holy Trinity has strong links with the church through regular assemblies and a service in church at least once a term.

Anyone who is a full member of any denomination may make their communion with us.

We look forward to meeting you whether as a ‘one off’ or more regularly.
