A BUILDING FOR THE COMMUNITY
You do not need to be a churchgoer to appreciate the importance of St Matthew's Church as a building. The Grade II* listed building lies at the heart of Blackmoor Village, was designed by Alfred Waterhouse, the same architect who designed the Natural History Museum, and completed in 1869.
In addition to formal worship, St Matthew's plays an important part of life in Blackmoor and Whitehill, through such events as weddings, christenings and funerals, as well as special school services.
The Friends of St Matthews was formed in 2015 to support the cost of repairs and maintenance to the church and churchyard. In 2020 the church is undergoing major structural work, you can read more about this on the main church website.
The Friends of St Matthews welcome members, supporters and donors who want to help maintain and protect St Matthew's for future generations.
