St Matthew’s church is a great place to take this special first step of faith.

We hold our baptisms on the second Sunday of the month - either during one of our regular services (at 9.30am or 11.15am) or as a separate service (at 1pm or, if that’s full, at 1-45pm).

If you live in our parish or have a family connection to St. Matthew’s then come along to meet David, the Vicar, during our Saturday Café. He is available between 10-30am - 11-30am and will be happy to discuss the details of your special day.

If you have any queries about having your child (or yourself) baptised at St Matthew’s, please see David at the Saturday Café, or contact us on
