Welcome to Widcombe

Two great churches, one fabulous family

We offer vibrant band-led contemporary worship on Sunday evenings at our larger Victorian church, St Matts, and traditional Sunday morning services in our beautiful historic parish church, St Thomas à Becket.

Widcombe Parish Services

Services at St Thomas and St Matt's

As restrictions are easing, we would love to welcome you to our in-person services at our two churches in Widcombe. We may not be able to sing inside, but we will sing outside whenever the weather permits!

For more information on how this will look over the summer, please see below.

Check the website regularly for up-to-date information. Or sign up for our weekly emails for details of each week’s services to arrive in your inbox on Thursday afternoons! Links to our online resources, earlier sermon series and other resources are also below.

Don't miss out!

To keep up to date with services, resources and online gatherings of our churches, please sign up to receive emails.
