Bishop Mike

St Matthew’s is hosting a visit by Bishop Mike to the Deanery Synod. This will be an open meeting and will include an opportunity to ask questions of Bishop Mike. We are trying to encourage as many to attend as would like to from PCC’s and congregations. If you would like to submit a question to the Bishop please could you send them to at St Matthews by Wednesday 7 November.

Hospitality Sunday

Back by popular demand

On Hospitality Sunday we give and receive hospitality to each other by having lunch together after the Sunday Service in our homes in small groups (4-10 people). This is a great way to get to know each other better and have lots of fun, as well as meet and welcome people who have recently joined St Matthew’s. How does it work? There will be a list to sign (as individuals or families) if you would like to participate. You can specify whether you would like to host a lunch or whether you would like to be a guest. During the week of 11th November, I match guests to hosts, I contact the hosts, the hosts contact guests (via email or phone) and it happens…it’s very simple really. Believe it or not, it’s actually easier to match a larger number of people so do sign up—it’s great fun. Yours, Margaret May
