Latest Updates
Service of prayers & reflection: 17 October

Normal services from Sunday 3 October

We return to our usual pattern of Sunday services at 8am and 10am and we will be celebrating our Harvest Festival on Sunday 3 October. You will no longer need to book to attend the Sunday morning services. Online services will continue to be available.

Sunday Morning Coffee

Next month we hope to start offering coffee once again after the morning service – if you can help with this – then please sign the notice on the board in the north aisle.

Face Coverings

It is no longer a legal requirement to wear a face covering, though the government expects and recommends that people wear face coverings in crowded and enclosed settings to protect themselves and others.

Croydon Lay Conference 2021

This year the Croydon Lay Conference is called Inside Out and is a free online event taking place on Saturday 6 November from 10.00am to 3.30pm

Foodbank

The Foodbank continues to be in heavy demand. Any help you can give is greatly appreciated

Before donating, please check:

Support Redhill Foodbank with Co-op Membership

We’re delighted to announce that the Foodbank is one of three causes in the local community which Co-op Members can select to support between now and 23 October 2021. Read more

Car Parking

To aid with Foodbank storage two portacabins and a storage container will be in place at the top end of the car park for the foreseeable future. This will inevitably restrict car parking and we apologise for any inconvenience this causes.

Christian Aid Coronavirus Emergency Appeal

The usual activities to raise money – house collections, church collections, and The Big Brekkie, cannot take place this year, but the need for help across the world is greater than ever. Whilst we are confined to our homes, many people have no refuge and are in even more danger. Please donate today if you can.

Reigate & Redhill Mutual Aid Group

Reigate & Redhill Mutual Aid Group is a local volunteer network setup to support those who may need help over the coming weeks and months. If you want to volunteer or find out more about them, please check their Facebook group or give Fr Andrew a call.

Morning & Evening Prayer

If you would like to follow exactly the same service as we do – there is an app you can install or a service of Morning and Night Prayer which may be helpful to use.

At these services, we shall be holding all our community in prayer, so please, if you have any particular matters you would like us to pray for, send a message through to me at vicar@stmatthews-redhill.org.uk and we will pray your request at the next service.
