We aspire to be an open and growing Christian community, serving our diverse neighbourhood
CHURCH OPEN FOR PRIVATE PRAYER on Saturdays 10am - 2pm
Following the government’s announcement that we can open again for private prayer, we are pleased to announce that we will be opening St. Matthew’s every Saturday from 20th June from 10am to 2pm. We will be following strict guidelines to ensure social distancing and appropriate hygiene measures.
OPENING FOR SUNDAY WORSHIP
Although we have now been given permission to hold services in Church we face various restrictions and we have to work out what will ensure the safety of all who attend, as well as how we continue to provide for those who can’t. We are therefore not rushing to open but will do it at the right time for all of us.
Sunday Mornings at 10am
On the second Sunday of the month, we have a Service of Prayer around a Discovery Group discussion.
Other Sundays will follow our normal pattern of Communion Services every week.
We are using a shorter and hopefully more inclusive service at 10am. We'll be inviting children to share with us at the beginning and end of the Service and will give them a ‘challenge’ each week based on the Activity Sheet (found lower down).
The link is the same for every Sunday Morning at 10am
