St. Matthew's is part of the Church of England, belonging within The Diocese of Leeds.

Chapel Allerton, north of Leeds, West Yorkshire, is an active, lively, community (see About My Area) which, despite it's growth over the years, has not lost its village feel.
St. Matthew's, along with our
neighbouring Churches meet regularly to plan joint events, shared worship, activities and resourses.
We are also exploring our links and making new friends within other faith groups.
Visit the BBCs' website to view their
Multifaith Calendar.

Chapel Allerton has a thriving annual
Arts Festival, which all the Churches become involved with; we have a wonderful Library, an arts centre, a good selection of shops and so many pubs, bars and restaurants, you wouldn't know where to go first!

In 1880 The Chapel Allerton Conservative Club, now known simply as
The Chapel Allerton Snooker and Social Club opened it's doors and is still going strong hidden away behind the Methodist Hall. It's a private but friendly club with some great snooker tables; there's a tennis club, a sports centre, a park with a bowling club, tennis courts and a children's playground; round the corner from the park, you'll find the allotments and a little further down still is Gledhow Valley Woods, a beautiful strip of woodland with bluebells, shady woodland walks and a lake.

Chapel Allerton Good Neighbours, run by
The WRVS, meet in the Methodist Centre on the first Tuesday of the month at 2pm. Theatre trips, good company, interesting speakers and more.
