Why Are Children and Young People So Important To Us?

DSC 0783 comp

Children and Young People (C&YP) are part of the church of the present and our future and Church is at its best when it includes all ages from new born to the very elderly.

As such, we delight in the number of C&YP who come regularly to St Matthew’s and our  groups are set up to ensure that they know they are full members of the church from their earliest days.  We practice child baptism (or christening – it’s the same thing) so that, ideally, no child can ever remember a time when they were not part of God’s family.  They are full members of our church and we celebrate that! 

We are currently looking to recruit a part-time young people's worker to help us support and nurture our young people.  If you like what you see on our website we hope you will feel encouraged to apply.  We are already praying for you.
The Closing Date for applications is Friday 26 May 2023.  Job Description is HERE.  Ideally we would love to have someone ready to start making a difference from the beginning of September.
