Public Worship at St Matthew’s is suspended

(Updated: 7 April 2021)


The Prime Minister's announcement of the Government’s 'Spring Plan 2021' sets out a series of earliest possible dates by which a gradual relaxation of lockdown restrictions may take place. In particular, the instruction to 'Stay at home' ended on Monday 29 March. The requirement for the extremely vulnerable to 'Shield' ended on Wednesday 31 March.

Public worship at St Matthew’s Church resumed on Thursday 1 April. Some services will continue to be live steamed for those who feel unable to attend in person. These may be accessed on this website and via our facebook page.

Funerals can take place in church with a legal maximum of 30 mourners. Weddings are scheduled to resume no earlier than 29 March with up to 6 guests, and from 12 April with 15 guests when a reception for that number may also be held.
