It may not seem it, but we are a very busy and productive church, with a mass every day and lunches every Tuesday. We also help out once a month with the soup run for the homeless around the Devonshire quarter. But below are some of the other events we do. Lets start with Christmas.
Christmas is a time for family and friends, but what if you are alone? St Matthew’s has helped a little, with the introduction of the annual Christmas dinner.
Baptisms are celebrated in the usual way, but Father Simon likes to encourage the children to be involved
Pilgrimages to Walsingham
Christian aid walk
We celebrate Pentecost in our own unique way
The Easter egg hunt is a favourite
The Safari supper with most of the inner city churches.
Lighting the candle at Advent.
Family services with the children helping out with the sermon
