About us

2022 weekend - cropped

We are evangelical Christians committed to the good news of salvation in Christ alone, by grace alone, through faith alone, as revealed in Scripture alone, to the glory of God alone. Members share those convictions without dividing over other issues. We belong to the Church of England, but we belong to Christ first, so we welcome Christians from any background.

St Matthew's Church was planted 150 years ago in a deprived area. They chose "we preach Christ crucified" for the first sermon. The congregation grew quickly and started two more churches, schools and a medical centre. Archbishop Justin Welby was one of hundreds who joined during a renewal in the 1970s.

In 2008 newcomers joined as a "church graft" from St Andrew the Great in central Cambridge. We are now praying that God might enable us to send a preacher and a team in a similar way. You can download a leaflet to find out more about our building and history.
