Mattins is held every Sunday, except for the first Sunday of the month, when there is Parish Communion.

The Service follows the traditional version from the Book of Common Prayer.

Origin of Matins/Mattins

Middle English: from Old French matines, plural (influenced by Church Latin matutinae ‘morning prayers’) of matin ‘morning’, from Latin matutinum, neuter of matutinus ‘early in the morning’, from Matuta, the name of the dawn goddess.

"I have built a great many new churches and restored many old ones, but for

worship I like the Old Church at Chelsea" - Sir Gilbert Scott (1811-1878).
