Welcome to St Matthew's Church, Stretton!

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 10.45 AM (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.

Worship at St Matthew's

14 August

I have decided, therefore, that during August, the first and third Sundays will continue to be services of Holy Communion, but the second and fourth Sundays will be non-eucharistic, which will enable us to explore more all-age friendly and contemporary styles of worship. For those who particularly value Holy Communion, there is the option of attending the 9.30AM service at St Cross, which will continue to be eucharistic.

Alan Jewell

The pattern for August will therefore be:

  • Sunday 14 August – All Age Friendly / Contemporary
  • Sunday 21 August – Holy Communion
  • Sunday 28 August – All Age Friendly / Contemporary
