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 are very glad to now be able to sing again during our services. Please note that we do still encourage wearing face coverings whilst inside the church buildings.

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.
