St Matt’s Regeneration Project
St Matthew’s is one of two churches that make up Widcombe Benefice, along with the Parish Church of St Thomas a Becket.
It is the largest church space in Bath save for Bath Abbey – seating some 500 in the main sanctuary with space to seat 100 for a meal in the Parish Hall. It is well used both by a growing church family and by the local community, with a variety of groups meeting there regularly as well as private hirers.
However, our building is tired and in urgent need of repair. The roof is leaking and damp is damaging the structure of the building. It needs to be re-ordered and re-furbished so that it is fit for purpose in the 21st century.
Priest in Charge Loves church pioneering, family, guitars, Macs, jeeps and Jesus, not necessarily in that order...
