Custodial history:
St. Matthew's began as a school church in Mount St. in the parish of St. George's, licensed for worship on 10 January 1874. The foundation stone of the church was laid on 29 March 1875 and it was consecrated on 13 September 1875. A District was assigned to it from St. George's, Bolton, by Order in Council, 26 October 1875, (London Gazette, 29 October). Part of the parish was assigned to the new church of St. Barnabas by Order in Council, 6 March 1896, (London Gazette, 10 March). By Order in Council, 27 October 1971, (London Gazette, 29 October) the parishes of St. Matthew and St. Barnabas were united as St. Matthew with St. Barnabas, St. Matthew's becoming the parish church of the united benefice. The old St. Matthew's church was declared redundant by Order in Council 10 March 1982 (London Gazette, 16 March) and from then on services were conducted in the new St Matthew's Worship Centre on Brownlow Way.
The following records were deposited in the Library as Diocesan Record Office by Rev. I.E. Butterworth in March 1983 and November 1984, and by Rev. E. Swinnerton, in July 1990.
