image of advent candlesChristmas is one of the most important times in the Christian faith - a celebration of the arrival of our Saviour, Jesus Christ. We begin this season with a time of waiting during Advent, which begins on the fourth Sunday before Christmas Day.

Advent is a time of preparation and remembrance, when we light candles to remember the light which came into the world with the birth of Jesus, and to look forward to the time when He comes again.

We invite you to celebrate with us here at St Matthew's. We have a wide variety of services and community events at this most special time.  

We post details on the calendar on this website, on our Facebook page, through Twitter, and in our Christmas newsletter, which we deliver to houses in the parish.

Don't forget, Christmas starts with Christ!
