Welcome to the Parish Church in Park Hill Croydon

Welcome to the Parish Church in Park Hill Croydon

People of St Matthew, 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"
