St Matthew’s Church Brixton is an inclusive church. We welcome all people regardless of age, relationship status, race, disability or sexual orientation, and regardless of how much or how little faith people have when they join us. We rejoice in our diversity. We are all One in Christ – Galatians 3:27b. Our attitude flows from our encounter with God in Christ in whom our longings for freedom and happiness find their fulfilment.


Following the call from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York all public worship at St Matthew’s is now on hold and we will become a “different sort of church” in the coming months to face the challenge of coronavirus.
