Who we are

Real God + Real Life = Real Church

“We’ve kept God in the fairytale realm, confined him to funerals and Christmas. But he's real and inviting us to join in heaven on earth right here in Canning Town.”

Welcome to Canning Town Parish Church

What is it?

Real God
God is a friend 🤝, not a fairytale 🙈

So we are confident in the fact that Jesus was a real person who showed us what God is like, putting flesh and bone on the distant, angry, make-believe idea of ‘God’ that many of us have grown up around. We do this by learning from what he did and said, putting it to action in our lives and expecting a life that is positively differently because of him.

Real Life
Monday blues 👔 and Friday fun 💃🏼, not just Sunday best 🙌🏼

So we don’t shy away from hard conversation and tough situations. We love to celebrate and need no excuses. We’re honest when we’re having a bad time, knowing that crying together is as important as laughing together. The bible shows a God who has dirt under his fingernails because he wants to be involved with the gritty reality of life. So there’s no need to hide – everyone’s welcome.

Real Church
We’re a family 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 , more than a tradition ⛪️

So we stay in touch through the week and learn to have each other’s backs. We’re a community of neighbours that stick together because of God’s love for us. He’s made us all different but not to go it alone. So we’re learning to follow Jesus’ example and celebrate what he’s done for us – 2000 years ago and even today. In our homes, out at work, walking the dog or wherever: we’re part of his family and learning to live like it.

St Matthias Church Canning Town Service Times

SUNDAY CHURCH

Sunday Mornings, 10.30 - 12noon

Sunday Church is when we get together as a big family to get courage and be inspired.

We catch up on what’s going on across the community, learn from Jesus and sing some epic hymns.

If you've never been to Church before, this is a great chance to get a taste of what it's about.

If you usually travel further for church, we’d love you to join in what God is doing here in your neighbourhood.
