St Matthew with St Chad

We have been a Church in this place since 1855. We are described as "An Oasis of Peace and a Powerhouse of Prayer". We are family and children friendly. See our Facebook Page.

We are a Church that wants everyone to be and feel safe in Church. Our PCC has updated our Parish Safeguarding policy statement and agreed our Domestic Abuse policy in line with National Church of England requirements. 

The parish of Smethwick: St Matthew with St Chad 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 Birmingham’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.
