Welcome to the Parish Church in Park Hill Croydon
We are a community of over 6,000 people living within walking distance of Croydon town centre. Park Hill is a popular location for young professionals, families and older citizens alike.
We are an inclusive people embracing the joys and challenges of being human with all our differences of race, gender, sexuality and social background. Our mission is to reach out and celebrate God’s unconditional love for the world with all people of our parish and with the wider community. As Desmond Tutu once said: "Christ, when he was lifted up did not say 'I draw some people to myself'. He said 'I draw all, All, ALL'.
Come just as you are.
"Come and join us for worship and community activities"
(Diocese of Egypt) Dialogue sessions between Al-Azhar and the Episcopal Church, began last Wednesday in Lambeth Palace in London and were attended by Grand Imam Dr. Ahmed Al-Tayeb, the Sheikh of Al-Azhar al Sharif at the invitation of the Archbishop of Canterbury in the United Kingdom.
We encourage you to join with us on a new experience.
At St Matthew Croydon we have a number of groups following various stages of the 'Pilgrim Course'. This is an opportunity for all those who would like to discover more about the Christian faith.
We generally meet at St Matthew's church on Saturday mornings at 10am for a couple of hours, coinciding conveniently with the availability of coffee and cakes. Our house groups also offer the 'Pilgrim' course.
Do feel able to drop in and join us at 10am on Saturdays to sample the course. The course is open to everyone.
