St Matthews Oxhey
St Matthew's Oxhey is a friendly church where you will find a warm welcome regardless of age, ability, colour, creed or sexual orientation. Following the latest Government easing of restrictions we have decided that we will be re-opening the church for public worship on Sunday, 14th March, Mothering Sunday.
<span style="font-size: 1rem;">Unfortunately we do not have a resident vicar at the moment but we will continue to have our normal Sunday morning service with visiting clergy as much as possible. When we have no cover our Churchwardens lead a simple Service of the Word with readings and prayers. Hymns are normally included but are not possible during the current restrictions. If you want to contact us to arrange a Baptism or Marriage please use the 'Get in Touch' email and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.</span>
We have a hearing loop and large print copies of our services and hymn books available and are currently working to improve access for those who find steps challenging. Please feel free to ask if you need any help or have any questions.
The parish of Oxhey: St Matthew 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 (PSO). The Diocese of St.Albans’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.
