We will issue more information about how St Matthew's Church is here
 to serve the Community of Rastrick in the name of Jesus Christ,
 in the coming days and weeks.


A warm welcome to St. Matthew's - a church that is both Anglican and 
Methodist at the same time.
At St. Matthew's you will find a variety of worship reflecting the different
traditions from which we are gathered.  All of them are based on
 our beliethat God is highly relevant to the modern world. 
We seek to be open to new ways of experiencing faith 
and understanding the Bible. 
If you are looking for a church which is not dogmatic, rigid or
 judgmental and which accepts people as they are, you are likely
 to feel at home with us.


St Matthew's is committed to the Safeguarding of Young People and 
Vulnerable Adults.  The Ecumenical Church Council has based its policy
 on the Church of England's policies and best practice on Safeguarding. 
St Matthew's policy is updated annually. 
The Parish Designated Safeguarding Officer is Mrs. Jennifer Normanton,
 whose  contact details can be found on  our Safeguarding Page.
