Churchyard Bin

We have contacted the council following the non-collection of the churchyard bin and they have apologized. Following a system error the bin hasn’t been emptied for the last two months.

This has now been rectified.

Remember if the bin is full you are welcome to take your rubbish home with you or use the bin by the church.

Thank you

Churchyard Update

Our volunteers Richard, Malcolm and Beverley have been extremely busy: tidying up, cleaning, weeding and organizing external workmen for the churchyard this year and have shown great determination and dedication to the charity. Helping us meet our legal obligations and improve the feel and look of the churchyard in the process.

I am sure everyone will agree the churchyard is looking the best it has been for many years.

Thank you!

We now welcome Neil back into the team of volunteers.

If you would like to get involved or make a donation please contact Dr David Knowelden ‭on 01723 864870. ‬

Don’t worry, we are not looking for someone to commit to a regular fixed amount of hours, in-fact, all the volunteers work flexibly, when and if they can, around work, family and friends.

Together we can achieve.

St Matthew’s


Our volunteers have been busy again cleaning church and preparing for a Baptism and increased footfall visiting the church this weekend.

It looks amazing – thank you for all your hard work and dedication!

Remember the church is a community building and is open to anyone wishing to look round during day light hours.

If you are looking to hire or visit the church outside of these hours you can check availability by calling one of the Church Wardens.

Of course, church key holders and external contractors can attend to their work at any time, so please do not be alarmed if you see the church lights on during an evening, outside of the normal church services.

Thank you

Fabric Fund Update

Energy @ St Matthew’s

Following changing electric supplier and joining the collective buying power of Parish Buying we are now 100% renewable in electric.

We have also changed the majority of our bulbs to LED saving up to 90% electric per bulb.

We are currently fundraising so we can change the remaining bulbs.
