    We are located in the centre of a small town. Our church membership is mainly middle-class, with many City workers among our congregation. A lot of the dads work extremely long hours and miss seeing their children during the week, which means that weekends are a vital time for catching up with family. One knock-on impact of this seems to be that Sevenoaks men often do not have the opportunity to form friendships with other men. Those on the fringe of our church often stay there without ever getting more involved.

    St Matthew’s is a medium-sized anglican church situated on the edge of Plymouth. The congregation is largely drawn from the parish (approximately 2,000 homes) and the neighbouring urban area, with a small number of people travelling in from the city and the surrounding countryside. St Matthew’s has an active ministry to families, with growing youth groups, full parent and toddler groups, uniformed organisations meeting on site, and the building being used for other community and leisure organisations. St Matthew’s is a typical family-friendly church.
