This Anglican/Methodist Local Ecumenical Partnership (LEP), which is located in an Anglican building, is situated in a central main road position in the ancient township of Rastrick. St Matthew's is part of a United Anglican Benefice with St John the Divine, Rastrick. St John's is not part of the LEP.
St Matthew's is one church family; a welcoming fellowship worshipping and working together to the glory of God and his Son, Jesus Christ. We share one bread and wine in the Eucharist. We look to the working of the Holy Spirit amongst us in building up the kingdom of God.
The church tradition is middle of the road, embracing the best of both Anglican and Methodist traditions. The Sunday morning service is at 9.15am. On the 1st Sunday of the month All-age Communion (sometimes including church parade for uniformed organisations who take an active role in the service); 2nd Sunday Holy Communion; 3rd and 4th Sundays either Morning Worship or Holy Communion. The service on the 3rd Sunday is usually led by a Methodist Minister or lay preacher. Where there is a 5th Sunday in the month a joint Benefice service is held with St John the Divine.
Further details can be found on our website www.stmatthewsrastrick.org
There is also a said service of Holy Communion at 10.30am on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month.
