St Matthew’s Church

St. Matthew’s CE Primary School is proud to be part of the St. Matthew’s church family. We work closely with our church and Rev. Kate is a regular visitor to our school. Our church plays a significant part in the lives of our children and we attend services and celebrations there regularly.

Message of welcome from Rev. Kate Burgess

It is a great privilege to be part of the St Matthew’s School family and to be part of the growing links between the school and St Matthew’s Church.

I always enjoy my time in school, whether that is taking assemblies, visiting classrooms or enjoying end of term productions because I get so many smiles, cheerful voices saying, ‘Hello, Reverend Kate!’ and a warm welcome from staff and children alike. And so I also love welcoming the School family into Church – year groups to Church for workshops, as well as whole school events with children, staff and parents and carers, such as services to mark the seasons of Lent, Easter, Harvest and Christmas, and the July graduation service for Year 6.

St Matthew’s Church belongs to all of us – a place and space for each one of us to know our individual specialness to God, whatever our faith.

You are always welcome!

Reverend Kate Burgess
