Reredos of The Last Supper
Our fantastic reredos, which depicts in great detail Jesus and the Disciples at The Last Supper, has been cleaned and protected with the help of a grant from The National Lottery Heritage Fund. The Conservationists took the opportunity to carry out the work while the church was closed and now our restored and preserved reredos is ready for everyone to see and enjoy. Please come and see it.
At this time, we look to God, whose love is more than we can ever ask for or imagine. May you be sustained and renewed by Him daily.
The church at Marstow was originally called St. Martins and was sited lower down the valley where it regularly flooded.
So in 1855 the old church was demolished and the new church of St. Matthew's was built at Brelston Green and consecrated in 1857.
A WELCOME FOR ALL
We are a small but open and friendly community and welcome everyone to come and worship here, join in our activities, or simply enjoy the church in silence and solitude.

Be still and find peace.
