Public Worship at St Matthew’s is suspended

(Updated: 6 January 2021)

Following the Prime Minister’s address on Monday 4 January announcing a third national lockdown the Parochial Church Council has resolved to suspend public worship at St Matthew’s until further notice. The primary reason for this closure is the Government’s instruction to ‘Stay at home’, together with the greatly increased transmissibility of new variant of the Covid-19 virus.

During this period services will continue to be live streamed on this website and via Facebook from St Matthew’s Vicarage. On Sundays, the Parish Mass will take place at 10.15am, and on Wednesdays at 7.30pm a Mass of the day will be celebrated. Details of variations and additional services may be found on this website, and in our weekly notices.

Resources for praying at home are available from the Parish Office, and an order of service booklet will be made available for each service on this site.

Weddings and Funerals may take place in church with a legal maximum of 30 guests or mourners.

Staying in touch

The office can still be reached by telephone and email only.
