St Matthew’s Primary children create a warm atmosphere at

‘Warm Spaces’ at St Matthew’s Church

‘Warm Spaces’ is part of a nation-wide initiative to open up Church spaces as warm, safe places for anyone
to come along and meet a friendly face, have some refreshments and be somewhere warm. As part of this
new initiative at St Matthew’s Church, children from St Matthew’s Primary School were delighted to help out
on Saturday 26th November, making teas and coffees and play with any younger children who turned up. Six
children, accompanied by two members of staff, welcomed families into the Church with a cup of tea and
free heat, games to play and other families to chat with.
Mr Lucas, the St Matthew’s Primary School Headteacher, said “This is a wonderful initiative to help our local
families and community and we were delighted to be involved. Our children were ambassadors for our
school and were so polite, well-mannered and generous with their time: we are very proud of them all.”
St Matthew’s School will be present once per term to help with this initiative, however, members of the
Church community will be at ‘Warm Spaces’ every Saturday from 12noon – 5pm at St Matthew’s Church, in
the St Matthew’s Playgroup building.
All are welcome and it is an opportunity to get out of the cold and be in a safe environment, where there is
free heating, and most importantly a nice hot cup of tea.
See you there!

Communion during this time

In these unprecedented times, we are working hard to find imaginative solutions in a landscape that has been rapidly changing. Sometimes we get things right, and sometimes we miss the mark. I apologise that this has been the case regarding communion.

For those of you who have received wafers in a parcel, we would ask that you either consume them, or put them somewhere safe to bring back once we are able to be together again.

We are going to be sending out a new order of service for use during this time as either a simple service of the word or, on occasion, to help us to share an Agape meal together.
