This is a simplified service aimed at encouraging younger members of the congregation to take part in the whole service. It still includes the important element of Eucharist (the taking of bread and wine). Our teenage members (St Matthew's Amazing Youth Team or SMAYT for short) take a prominent (supervised) role in this including acting as sidespeople (the ones who greet you when you arrive and give you your books) and taking the collection. The service is followed by coffee/tea and biscuits in the hall.

Our regular Sunday morning service is open to all and is a Sung Eucharist (communion or the taking of bread and wine) with hymns and organ music. We use a traditional form of worship. The service is open to all ages and we have a children's play area where small children can be kept amused. During the first half of the service we have Young Matters (our Sunday School) for age 3-11 and SMAYT (for those of secondary school age. These take part in the hall behind the church. The older children join us half way through the service and the younger ones just before Communion when they can come to the rail for a blessing. After the service we all adjourn to the hall for coffee and a catch-up chat.
