The Parish Centre
The Parish Centre is situated on Church Street, opposite St Matthew's Church. The postcode is HD6 3NF. It was built in 1970 as a joint venture by the then Anglican and Methodist Churches at St Matthews.
In recent years we have renewed the roofing, replaced the central heating system and renewed all the doors and windows. We have also completed (November 2017) refurbishing the Ladies and Gents toilets and are in the process of re-decorating inside.
The Centre consists of the main hall (with adjoining kitchen
The downstairs meeting room, which can be extended if required,

and the gallery to the main hall.
The Parish Centre is used extensively throughout the week by the St Matthew's Uniformed Organisations - Scouts, Beavers, Cubs, Brownies, Rainbow and Guides, The Parent and Toddler Group and by the St Matthew's Theatrical Society
The day-to day running of the Parish centre is carried out by the Parish Centre Managers. See Meet the Church Officers for contact details.
