Church of England Diocese of Rochester South Gillingham

St Matthew's Wigmore

on Sunday 20th December Medway became a Covid Tier 4 area, and this was followed by the National Lockdown and since our local region has an exceptionally high infection rate, we have not opened for public worship in 2021. 

Our online pre-recorded services are continuing on You Tube, and the life of the parish continues with  safely distanced pastoral care, and weekly newsletters to the congregation. For enquiries about Weddings and Baptisms and Funerals please call the parish office on 01634 231736

The parish of South Gillingham: 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(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Rochester’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.

We are very conscious that families and individuals in our communities may have found their income has been drastically reduced because of the coronavirus crises, or are struggling at this time due the wait for benefits payments.
