Church Opening Hours

Welcome to St Matthew’s Church, the heart of the parish.

Services are held each month on the 2nd Sunday at 10.45am, the 3rd Sunday at 10.30am and during Christmas, Easter and Harvest-time.

The Church is normally open from 10.00am until 4.00pm daily; for visitors and pilgrims.

During everyday opening the Chantry will not be accessible, though it is possible to see the tomb of John Evans and the Edward V window through the rood screen. 

There are no public toilets in the village so you may wish to take advantage of local pubs nearby for food and facilities.

 We are, however, hosting hourly guided tours on Thursdays:  24 February, 24 March, 28 April, 26 May and 30 June 28 July, 25 August, 22 September, 27 October and 24 November.

  On these days there will be a brief slide presentation before your guided tour.  Refreshments will be available in our pop-up cafe in the nearby Village Hall between 10.00am and 3.30pm, serving coffee and cakes, tea and scones and light lunches.


To reserve your place on a tour, or request a group booking, please indicate your preferred date stating morning or afternoon, by contacting us at this address:


Visitors are advised that the path to the Church is cobbled and uneven and can present difficulties for those with mobility issues, and it can be very slippery when wet.  Please take care and use the handrail provided.  There is a wheelchair ramp in the porch giving access into the building, where caution is needed throughout owing to uneven floors, steps, tiled areas and tombs set in the surface.

 Should you need further information, please contact St Matthew’s Parochial Church Council at the above email address.
