Welcome to St. Matt’s

St. Matthew’s Church High Brooms is a vibrant and welcoming Anglican Church in the High Brooms area of Tunbridge Wells. This website is designed to be an extension of our Church Community, and if it is your first time of visiting, then a special welcome to you.

Our Services

As you know, the last two years have been very different, and church has also seen many changes to how we worship.
Currently (start of 2022), we have one main service each Sunday, at 10am. We are meeting in church, and it is great to see so many people back in the building, worshiping together.
We are also starting up all of our other services, once a month to start with. See below for more details of these.
We are also very aware that some people are not yet ready to come back to in-person worship, or may have other reasons why they can’t be in the building, so our 10am service will be broadcast live at 10am every Sunday on our Facebook page and on our You Tube Channel
If you would like to watch the service later, you can find it in either of the above places, or here on our website.

Here are the details of all our services happening at the moment.
Each of our services has its own particular flavour.

8am: Book of Common Prayer communion service on the first Sunday of the month. This is a small traditional service, with holy communion.

10am: informal and friendly with children’s groups. The place for all the family. Great coffee is served before and after the service. This service is on every Sunday.

5pm: traditional and welcoming, tea and cake is served from 4.30pm.
The 5pm service will be on the 2nd Sunday of each month, starting on 13th February 2022.

7pm: vibrant and contemporary, we have longer for worship than we might have at other times. Drinks and snacks are served before and after the service.
The 7pm service will be on the 4th Sunday of each month, starting on 13th March 2022.

Whichever service you choose you will be assured of a warm welcome.

Children

At 10am we have a full children’s program with a crèche and Glow and Bright for our primary school age children. On the first Sunday of every month we all worship together as a church family.

Youth

At the 10am service we have a youth programme for young people in years 7 upwards.

Parking

There is street parking around the church. We would ask church members to avoid parking in Gordon Road unless absolutely necessary as it inconveniences our neighbours.
