Coronavirus Information

The Church will be closed until further notice

The Church of England has suspended public worship until further notice – in line with other precautions nationally, to slow the progress of infection to protect the most vulnerable. But the Church is the Body of Christ, and God’s believing and praying people continue their work.

Telephone Prayer Network If you’d like someone to chat and pray with you on the phone (just a little chat and some short prayers for ourselves and our world), or if you’d like to be remembered in the daily prayers in church please phone.

Isolated and without help? If you don’t know where to turn please call us and if St Matthew’s can help, we will.
