New here? / What to expect

Where can I find you & where can I park

St Matts church main entrance is on Portman Road, just up from the Ipswich Town football club. There is pedestrian access from Civic Drive, just opposite the New Wolsey Theatre.

Ample parking is availble in the adjacent St Matthews school (through the blue gates, up the slope) and bikes can be locked to the railings to the right of the main entrance.

Is there a dress code

What about my kids

Will I have to say anything, sign anything or be singled out in any way?

You won’t be put on the spot.

  • You won’t have to wear a name badge or be singled out in any way.
  • You don’t even have to sing along if you don’t feel comfortable.
  • You’re not expected to give when we receive the offering.

Aside from Sunday services, what else goes on?


We regularly run Alpha  courses for people to explore the Christian faith.
We run regular groups for pre-schoolers and a youth cafe for high school children.
There are also various social groups for ladies and men, and for seniors.
