Leyburn: St Matthew
We are located in the centre of lower Wensleydale in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales.
The market town of Leyburn is a hub for social, retail and commercial life and St Matthew's reflects the characteristics of its community.
We believe that the Anglican church exists largely for those who do not attend, so a major part of our vision is reaching out to all those in our parish.
St Matthew's 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. The Diocese of Leeds’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSO. 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.
