Church Services

St Matthew's - 10:45am

A lively service in a friendly family atmosphere.

Ideal for families, the 10:45 all-age service is a time spent gathered around God’s word, the Bible. All ages come to the first part of our meeting where we sing and learn together – all are involved from the youngest children to the oldest adults. After this, those aged up to school Year 9 move to their different groups where they learn together through fun activities, while the adults stay in the main church area. There is a supervised crèche for the under 2s throughout the service.

Our time together ends over coffee and tea and an opportunity to catch up and encourage one another. Holy Communion is usually celebrated on the 1st Sunday of the month.

Cheltenham Minster St Mary's - 11am

A traditional Anglican service in the town’s most historic church.

The 11am service is a traditional service, accompanied by the organ, held in the ancient but well-preserved Cheltenham Minster. Holy Communion is usually celebrated on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month – see calendar for details. After the service, coffee and tea are served in St Matthew’s.

St Matthew's - 6:30pm

The 6:30 service is our most informal of our three services, with Bible teaching, prayers and worship led by a band. Many who come are students and young adults.

Coffee and tea are served as we come in – and there’s always an opportunity to discuss what we have heard and to catch up with each other. Holy Communion is usually celebrated on the 3rd Sunday of the month – see calendar for details.
