St Matthew's, Perry Beeches is the Parish Church (Church of England) serving an area bounded roughly by Kingstanding Road to the east, Walsall Road to the West, Queslett Road to the north, and Perry Park to the south.

St Matthew's seeks to provide a spiritual home and community resource for all in the neighbourhood, welcoming to all. We want to discover the heart of God’s love with all who seek.

We offer opportunities for worship for young and old on Sundays and through the week.  We offer ministries for the different stages of life (including Christenings, Confirmation, Weddings, Funerals, house blessings, prayers for healing).  Our premises are used weekly by a variety of community groups, and for one-off private parties.  Please come along or get in touch to discuss any of these things, or anything else you think we might help with.
