The Church continues to be alive and active, but public worship in our buildings remains suspended in line with Government guidelines.

However, on Saturdays from 4th July 2020, St Matthew's Church will be open for individual private prayer from 2pm-4pm.

Please adhere to the following:

1. Sanitise your hands on entering and leaving the building

2. Keep 2m apart from other households inside the building at all times

3. Use your own personal bible / prayer book from home

4. If you want to light a candle in memory of a loved one, please first allow time for alcohol-based hand sanitiser to completely dry and then light the candle from an existing candle flame. Do not use matches.

Our church website contains details of how to join others online for prayer, worship, study, and community life (please see our Spirituality Resources page). You can also find prayer resources at

If you would like to join our weekly Sunday service of Holy Communion held using Skype, please contact Revd Helen on either 0114 2482769 or [email protected] for further details.

Revd Helen and Revd Michael are also available to receive calls between 9am and 11am weekdays and Saturday mornings, but please feel free to phone us at any time if we can be of any help whatsoever.
