St Matthew’s is a parish in the Spelthorne Deanery of the Diocese of London. We are under the episcopal care of Bishop Jonathan Baker SSC, Bishop of Fulham. We stand within the Catholic tradition of the Church of England, seeking to respond faithfully to the Gospel message in our own age.

We seek to be an inclusive and welcoming Christian community, imposing no conditions on those who come through our doors other than a willingness to be open to the love of God revealed in Jesus Christ.
