Summary Description

It is now over 175 years since the foundation stone of St Matthew’s was laid in Nine Tree Field, at the heart of this vibrant area of Bristol. The Church was consecrated less than two years later, in 1835. Much has changed since 1833. The Parish’s name changed as it merged with St Nathanæl’s in 1984 (becoming officially St Matthew’s and St Nathanæl’s).
