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 9.30 AM, 10.45 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.

Candlemas Christingle Extravaganza!

23 January 2022

Please join us at St Matthew's at 3PM next Sunday afternoon for our Candlemas Christingle Extravaganza! Suitable for all ages, we will hear the story of Jesus being presented in the Temple. As Jesus is acknowledged as the Light of the World, this was traditionally the time when candles were blessed. We will be making Christingles and using them in our worship. The service will also give us an opportunity to support the Children’s Society.
