Visiting St. Matthew's


St. Matthew's Church, Sherford Road, Elburton, PL9 8DQ.
St. Matthew’s Church is located on the eastern boundary of Plymouth, close to Elburton Centre and next to the Elburton Inn. It is an easy walk from most parts of the parish, is well served by public transport and is easily accessible by car.
The Church has entrances at the front and rear, both of which are open for services. For security, the doors are often locked after the start of the evening service and during the day. When events are taking place in the lower hall, the front entrance may not be open so is it best to come in through the rear door, from the car park.
On Foot
If you are coming on foot from Elburton Centre, St. Matthew’s can be accessed by the underpass crossing the Elburton Road outside the Elburton Inn. Once through the underpass, turn right up the steps for the front entrance in Sherford Road or turn left up the ramp to access the rear entrance through the car park.
By Public Transport
Elburton is served by a frequent bus service from the City Centre. The No. 6 (operated by First Devon and Cornwall) can be caught at a number of stops in the City Centre, including Drake Circus, Royal Parade A8 and Mayflower Street.
The No. 6 Stops at Plymstock Broadway before reaching St. Matthew's and stops immmediately outside St. Matthew's church car park (The Elburton Inn).
The No. 6 can also be caught back into the town centre from the bus stop opposite St. Matthew's Car Park (Elburton School). This bus stop can be reached using the underpass outside the Elburton Inn.
By Car
The front of the church is on Sherford Road. There is on-street parking along Sherford Road outside the church, and along other nearby streets - please park considerately if doing so. There is a church car park, but it is only accessible via the east-bound carriageway of the A379. By kind permission, those attending a Sunday morning service may use the Elburton Inn car park, accessible immediately behind the pub on Sherford Road. This is particularly useful for those coming from Elburton/Brixton, as the church car park is hard to reach from the roundabout.
