About this church
Many of the windows and the carved and glazed Memorial Screen at the rear of the nave are of particular interest as they celebrate local regiments and individual parishioners who fell in the First World War; and were carried out by noted artists of the late Arts & Crafts period. The church is a much loved central Ealing landmark, commanding a view across the expanse of Ealing Common.
Our church has its origins in a temporary iron church erected on the triangle of grass in Grange Park in 1872. St Matthew's is a fine example of a late Victorian church, possessing exceptional stained glass windows and woodcarvings. It is built of brown sandstone and red brick in the Gothic style with an apsidal chancel.
