About Us

Thank you for visiting St Matthew’s website. We hope you find all the information you need.

St Matthew’s Church is the parish church of the former colliery community of Silksworth on the outskirts of the City of Sunderland. We are an Anglican Church in the Diocese of Durham and part of the Church of England. Our Church is welcoming, lively and made up of all ages.

We are an active part of our community in many traditional ways and some not so traditional – St Matthew’s has been at the heart of the community of Silksworth for over 140 years. We work thogether with our sidter church of St Wilfrid in Doxford.

We would love to see you and hear from you  – thank you for browsing
