Our church building is on Stretton Road, just opposite the Park Royal Hotel. We are part of the Church of England Diocese of Chester and our parish covers Stretton and parts of Appleton. We are linked to St Cross Church, Appleton Thorn, just down the road.
Sunday services are usually held at 9.00 AM, 10.30 AM, and 6.30 PM. (These times vary occasionally, so please check weekly notices or contact us to check.) We also have a midweek communion service on Thursdays at 10.30 AM. If you want to call in to have a look at the church, the best time is usually on a Wednesday morning when we are open for coffee.
On Friday afternoons, we hold our Praise & Play service. This is aimed at children not yet at school and their parents and other carers. You can expect singing, a bible story, craft activities and a drink and a snack.
We have a church school, Stretton St Matthew's Church of England Primary. The school holds services in church each half-term and the church provides a weekly assembly. For details of admissions, please see the school’s website.
Although we cannot worship together in church at the moment, we are able to open for private prayer. St Matthew's church will be open for private prayer between 2-3pm on Sundays, beginning on Sunday 22nd November. We ask that visitors please use hand sanitiser on entering church and wear a face covering.
The prayer and memory trees which usually form part of our advent "Sparkle" event have been put up and hopefully they may be a comforting focus in these difficult times. If anyone would like a name or message to be placed on either tree but is unable to come to church then please get in touch with Michele on 01925 450 881 and this will be done.
