Church of England - We are part of the Chichester Diocese of the Church of England but we have come from a wide variety of church backgrounds to join to together as the St Matthew's family.

Evangelical Alliance - We subscribe to the Evangelical Alliance statement of faith and want to work with other churches both locally and nationally for the renewal of our town and nation.

New Wine - Our Vicar is part of the New Wine Network taking part in leader's events and having led an area group in his previous role. A number of church members attend the Summer Conferences.

 24/7 Prayer and Wildfires - Passionate believing prayer is a top priority at St Matthew’s and we will be joining in the Wildfires Festival this year to connect with others and with God. 


We also support a number of missionaries and mission organisations working in various countries, as well as several charities making a difference in our local community.
