The P C C has considered carefully when to re-open the doors at St Matthew's following the recent lockdown period.  We have made numerous changes to arrangements inside the building to ensure that people feel safe and welcome when returning to Church.  Our Covid-19 Risk Assessment can be found here.

St Matthew’s has offered a warm welcome to everyone since 1865. The P C C is committed to ensuring that everyone at St Matthew’s feels safe and supported. We take the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults very seriously. Therefore if you have any concerns please speak to Fr John WisemanMrs Margaret Barnard, or The Diocesan Safeguarding Officer Abbey Clephane-Wilson.
