Mathon Church

... at the heart of the village


The village of Mathon is situated in a rural Herefordshire parish with the beautiful and historic parish church of St. John the Baptist in the heart of the village (on the Cradley to Colwall road - postcode WR13 5PW). The congregation share traditional Christian services and values, reaching out into the wider community with a hand of friendship and welcome to all who would wish to join them. With over 900 years of history it is a Church and a building with many roles. Mathon church is a place of meeting and peace, a place of prayer and for music. It is a focus for the community, a building for everyone ... and a venue for milestones in the lives of many generations of local families.

Peace in which to pray

... fellowship in which to worship
