Public Worship Resumes at St Matthew's

(Updated: 27 July 2020)
 

Following the Government's recent relaxation of the lockdown a limited program of worship will be offered in church. Please note that the Bishop of Peterborough has strongly advised that face coverings should be worn in church, by both ministers and congregations, combined with hand washing and social distancing.

On Sundays
10.15am The Parish Mass

(Please note the maximum seating capacity, observing two metre physical distancing, is 70)
The Parish Mass will be live streamed via Facebook and on this website.

We are currently fundraising to install high quality equipment to improve your experience.
If you would like to make a donation toward this cost please contact our Parish Office.


On weekdays
Monday, Wednesday, and Friday
11.00am Said Mass
Entry for all services is via the main porch.

At each service, worshippers will be assisted by a team of stewards who will record your contact details for track and trace purposes.

Our aim is to ensure the very best and safest practice in Covid hygiene protocols is followed.
Worshippers are invited to meet afterwards in physically distanced groups of up to six on the green.

The office can still be reached by telephone and email only.
