Church of England Diocese of Winchester St. Matthew, Winchester

About Us

We are an inclusive, welcoming and vibrant Anglican parish for all ages, situated in the heart of Winchester in a lovely part of southern Britain. We are committed to serving the community both locally and beyond. We want to be radical in demonstrating that the root of all we seek to be, and do, is found in the love of God.

St Paul’s is a spacious Victorian church with a history dating back to the 1870s. It was built due to the increasing population of what was originally a rural suburb. During 2019 and 2020, our Building for Life project made substantial improvements that have significantly enhanced the beauty and safety of the church and the quality of what we can offer the community – for spiritual and secular groups alike.

The Book of Common Worship is used at our vibrant 9.30 am Sunday Parish Eucharist, which welcomes people of all ages. Families with children and young people are well provided for, with lots of different activities and opportunities to be part of the worship. We would be delighted if you would like to join us one Sunday.

On Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays Evening Prayer is said at 4.30 pm.

The St Paul’s site is home to the St Paul’s Pre-School and Toddler Group, and often concerts and other events take place.
