The regular three campaigns are still available; The first is the regular Lockdown down campaign to ensure that the churches running costs are met during this difficult time, The Second is for St. Matthew’s Sponsored Child, Many of us donated on a regular basis to the sponsored Child when we were in Church, so this is an opportunity to continue those regular donations.  The Third is the regular Malawi Hospital Charity that we have donated to on the first Sunday in the month for many years.  We hope to encourage once a month donations.  For details of how to give see our giving page here.

PARISH EUCHARIST WILL BE AT 10am, LED BY REV. VAL HICKS

CONGREGATIONAL SINGING WITH AN ORGANIST. FOLLOWED BY TEA OR COFFEE IN THE LOUNGE - LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOU ALL IN CHURCH.

Although restrictions have now been lifted, we are still mindful that the virus has not gone away.  It is no longer law to socially distance, but we would ask that you continue to do so in Church and to wear a face mask for your own and others safety, except when you are singing, taking communion or if you are one of the readers.  The peace will still be a wave and for the moment Communion will be given in one kind, bread only. Please sanitise your hands and come to the alter one at a time from each side and go back to your seat up the middle. We can now send the plate round for your collection. Sunday school children, please go to the Sunday School corner, and we will go out to the family room once the service starts and come back at the Peace.  Tea, Coffee and biscuits will be served in the Lounge after the Service please come and join us.
