Our church has some beautiful Stained Glass Windows and thanks to the inspiration of Ray Quant, churchwarden, and the hard work of members in fundraising, it has recently been renovated and refurbished at a cost of over £120,000. A disabled access and Hearing Loop have been installed and so has our new project the loud-speaker system. Most of our services are in English.

Turn down the lane at the side of Chemist/Doctor’s Surgery & follow road towards the Old Council Tip. Turn left before the Animalarium & follow the new road to St. Matthew’s Church. 
The previous Railway Crossing Gate route is still in use, but will not be manned for any Church services. Please use yellow phones if you are crossing there. 
We have a small carpeted area where children can read and draw during the services and parents are welcome to go out into the Sunday School with their children until they feel confident to go out alone. Children are most welcome at any service. We have a Sunday School room in the church grounds called the Den. Sunday School is the same time as Sunday Services. The children are very welcome and we often help out in church services.
Mother’s Union meets at 2.00pm, on the first Monday of each month, in Cairn Cottage, the home of our enrolling member, Joyce Berryman. New members are always welcome.

We have a 200 club draw on the second Wednesday of each month, at 11.00 am at Dovey Belle, High Street, Borth. It costs £12 a year, paid in advance. New members welcome at any time of the year. Telephone Susan James on 01970 871355 for information.

During the year, we have coffee mornings, United Parish lunches, Harvest suppers and we share in the Village bazaars in June and December. We unite with our local churches for the Women’s Day of Prayer services and Christian Aid Coffee morning and service. We celebrate together at midnight on Christmas Eve and give thanks for the New Year together with our Midnight Service on New Year’s Eve.
St. Matthews church is used for baptisms, weddings and funerals. For details about these please contact the Rev. Peter Jones - 822267
