The Anglican and Methodist Church of St Matthew Rastrick

What's Happening?

During August, we are in a quiet period, when many people are enjoying the summer break.

However, in September and October there will be many events taking place at St Matthews as part of our Heritage and Harvest celebrations. Details of the events can be found on the St Matthews' Facebook page .

The events include two concerts -- one by the Elland Silver Band and the second by a visiting choir from Finland.

Besides the concerts, the Brighouse  Arts Festival is hosting an Art Exhibition in St Matthew's Church from Saturday 15th September to the 14th October

Here is the Church of England advert featuring the Lord's Prayer. The advert was banned by a major cinema chain in the UK on the grounds it might cause offence.



The video features two Christian Groups in Yorkshire: Street Angels in Leeds which provide support to people in the city on a Friday night and the Saturday Gathering in Halifax. The Gathering was launched on the back of Calderdale churches work with the food bank. The video also includes a couple getting married in Lindley, Huddersfield.
