Posted by: stmadmin

St Matthew’s Church will have been on its present site in Chichester Road, Park Hill for 50 years in 2022. Our plans are to provide an event of interest every month of the year.

To celebrate this milestone, the church wishes to remind the whole Parish community that it is a facility for all. It is currently the home of sixteen different organisations. Its facilities may be booked on

There will be special events to mark the 50th and these will be displayed on this page with every issue of the Parish Magazine. The most up to date listing will be on this website.

If you have not already done so, you can also send your email address to and you will receive a weekly email with details of the church services and the community activities, that the church hosts. Also, every 2 or 3 weeks we may send an email with the latest information on the Anniversary Events direct to your mailbox.

There are other ways to stay connected and these will be used to send reminders of the events and are open to any other relevant conversations. These social media sites are WhatsApp: ✝️✝️ St Matthew's Church ✝️✝️, Twitter: @StMatthewCR, and Facebook: St Matthew Croydon. Please use any one of these that you choose, you will be very welcome.
