We’ve paused our services, but we haven’t stopped

Following the guidance published by the Church of England, we’re pressing pause on many of our regular services and activities as we aim to keep everyone in our community safe.

But that doesn’t mean that St. Matthew’s stops. This gives us a great opportunity to evolve and try different ways of worshiping God, equipping His people, growing His kingdom and serving Walsall.

We’re going to be sharing pre-recorded short services, every Sunday at 10am, on our YouTube channel.

In the meantime, whether you’re self-isolating or not, there’s plenty for us all to do. Let’s continue to pray for, support and keep in touch with all those around us.

And throughout this whole situation, let us keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, on whom our faith depends from beginning to end.

Cancelled services/events

We’re following the latest advice from the government and the Church of England, and therefore all of our Sunday services and mid-week activities/meetings are cancelled until further notice.

Instead, please subscribe to our YouTube channel where we are releasing daily thoughts for the day and are broadcasting a weekly, pre-recorded Sunday service at 10am.

You can also follow us on our social media channels for more updates.

Church office and centre

The church office and centre are now closed until further notice. Any urgent enquires should be emailed to

Please bear with us as it may take a bit longer to respond to any enquiries.

Annual Parochial Council Meeting (AGM)

Our Annual General Meeting has been postponed to later in the year (a new date will be announced in due course).

This means that our current wardens, PCC members and deanery synod representatives will all remain in post until further notice. Any nominations that have already been submitted will be included once we open up the process again.

Home Groups

Our home groups won’t be meeting face to face for the time being, and if they haven’t been already, your home group leader will be in touch about how your group will continue to support one another during this time.

Please continue to keep in touch, pray for and support each other, and study the Bible. If you’re not part of a home group, now is the perfect time to have a group of people supporting you, so let us know if you’d like to join one.
