Welcome to St Matthew's, Bethnal Green

St Matthew's is a Church of England church, in the Diocese of London, and is the focus of an inclusive, living Christian community.

It is the mother church of Bethnal Green where there have been people saying their prayers and celebrating life for more than 250 years.

This continues today....

Hello from the Churchwardens

We are Ingrid Doris and Malcolme Bass. We were re-elected Churchwardens at the 2014 Annual Vestry Meeting.

We would like to welcome you to St Matthew's, an inclusive church in the catholic tradition of the Church of England.

We seek to welcome and represent people from this diverse and rapidly changing parish – and anyone passing through.

We know we are not perfect but seek to be a beacon of the light of Christ in this fascinating area.

Why not pop in and see us?
