We are a Church that seeks to welcome everyone, We are an inclusive Church which means we are all welcome, whatever our gender, race or sexual orientation and with whatever needs we have. We are also a Recovery Friendly Churchcommitted to supporting one another in our mental health and well-being. Being a welcoming Church sometimes that means adapting what we do in order to meet people's needs. We are happy to do that, so if you or your family have specific needs please let us know.
Our hope is that St Matthew's is a place where people discover that they are loved, both by the God that created them and by their Church community. Knowing that you are loved without condition can be healing. It can lead to experiencing forgiveness as well as being able to let go of our past. It can also be a place where we find our role and realise that our gifts are valued. You are welcome to visit, to worship and to make yourself at home.
