St Matthew's Church is friendly and welcoming with links to St Matthew's Primary school on Poplar Road.
We have a BSL interpreter twice a month at the 10am service and hold quarterly Deaf/hearing services.
Our services are 8am Holy Communion (BCP) and 10am Eucharist (Common Worship)
Once a month, on our 3rd Sunday at 10am, we have a more informal Eucharist and we use power-point on a large screen.
We have an enthusiastic team of bell-ringers always on the lookout for new members and have a reputation for serving excellent home-made cakes at our coffee mornings and other events.
We have tea, coffee and refreshments after our 10am service in the adjacent Philip Holt Room.
And every Saturday we have a Book Cafe, also in the Philip Holt Room, from 10.30am - 12noon with tea, coffee and home made cakes.
Every Thursday 2pm to 4.30pm we have a welcome space in the Philip Holt room with free tea, biscuits, games and crafts. Books and jigsaws available to borrow or purchase.
