St Matthew’s, New Waltham
COVID update: St Matthews is currently open for a very limited pattern of worship. Please keep an eye on the webpage and facebook page for details, or ring the Rector on 01472 822172 for more information.
St Matthew’s is a welcoming congregation that is small enough to make friends and get involved quickly, but large enough to offer privacy and space if that is what you seek.
Worship is relaxed and prayerful. Children and young people are always welcome, and expecially free to roam at the monthly Family Service. The congregation has strong ties with the local Methodist Congregation, and join together for worship on the second Sunday of each month.
St Matthew’s has a wonderfully flexible building that offers both sacred space and space for community use. If you would like to use the church for a community event or class, please contact us for more information.
