Church of England Diocese of London St. Matthew, Westminster

St Matthew's Westminster

St Matthew’s Westminster is a church in the Catholic tradition of the Church of England where everyone is welcome, whatever their background. The church seeks to develop an understanding of community in the heart of the city through our threefold ministry of prayer, hospitality and dialogue. The daily rhythm of Eucharist, Morning and Evening Prayer is at the heart of our common life.


The parish of St Matthew Westminster is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of London’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
