Sunday Services

We would love to welcome you to join us for a service, as together we listen to the Bible and see what God has to say to us. Sometimes we come across words of challenge, but we are all on the same team, seeking to help and support each other in our daily lives as we try to get ready for our Lord's return.


Our main service is at 10:30am which is suitable for everyone. 

Whether you've been before or not, you would be most welcome to any of our services & events

You don't need to be amazing, or impressive, just come as you are,

Visiting St Matthew's on a Sunday Morning

8am in summer (BST) / 8:30am in winter (GMT) - Traditional Service

This service, on the first Sunday of the month, is a quiet, early morning service for reflection and thankfulness. 

We follow  the historic 'Book of Common Prayer' for services of Morning Prayer and Holy Communion.

10:30am - Morning Service

This service, which runs every Sunday, is a mixture of modern and traditional music with relevant and engaging Bible teaching. There are children's groups for those aged 3-11. Our services currently last just under an hour. There’s no particular dress code, although most people choose casual over formal. ​We start all together, then Children and young people are invited to go to their groups after about 15 mins. Here is a sample order of service:

Children's group activities include a Bible story and some sort of art and crafts. All our leaders undergo the appropriate DBS checking procedures (the Church Council has adopted the Diocesan Safeguarding policy and takes this matter seriously). An exception to this is the first Sunday of the month, where we all stay together, to give group leaders a well-earned break!
