St Matthew's, is the local Anglican Parish Church (Church of England) in Perry Beeches and aims to be a spiritual home and resource for all those living in its neighbourhood and those who choose to come to us for worship.
We are an inclusive church welcoming people of every age, background, colour, sexuality, gender identity, and experience. We are a mix of people of Christian faith, people exploring their beliefs, and, of course, people who have doubts. There’s always a place and a warm, unconditional welcome waiting for you.
Our call is to open the heart of God's love to all who seek him, and to provide for their needs, with baptism, confirmation, weddings and funerals, house blessings and spiritual and pastoral support.
Our worship is in the 'Modern Catholic' tradition and is dignified but never stuffy. The priest wears coloured vestments according to the Church season, and we use incense at all major celebrations - including our Sunday 10.00am Mass. Children and young people are always welcome, and there is a Sunday School on most Sundays if they wish to take part in that.
Our office is open Monday to Friday, 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. Tel. 0121 360 6964
