Staying at home: a new resource for young people
Southwark Catholic Youth Service has worked with some 6th form students on a mini-series ‘Christ is Alive’. This is an invitation for young people to focus on staying spiritually healthy and to ponder some of the big questions about life, through journaling and prayer.

This may be particularly relevant during this difficult time of lockdown. www.youtube.com/southwarkcatholicyouthservice

Welcome to the Web Site for the Catholic Parish of St. Matthias, Worcester Park, in the Archdiocese of Southwark.

Our Parish is a lively Catholic community situated on the borders of three Boroughs, Sutton, Kingston, and Epsom & Ewell. It stretches from the A3 in the north to the A24 in the south and includes Worcester Park, Malden Manor, Old Malden, Malden Green, and areas of New Malden, Motspur Park and North Cheam.

That area of the Parish in the Borough of Epsom and Ewell is in the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton but served from St. Matthias.
