It’s true that many hands make light work and there’s always plenty that needs to be done at church. At St Matthew’s we try to use our individual gifts and talents to serve God. Whether it’s music, gardening, preaching, cleaning, youth work or making a great cup of tea, there are plenty of in-house and outreach ministries where your service would be invaluable.


We believe that giving a portion of our money to God and his church regularly keeps our hearts from becoming greedy and it keeps our church healthy financially.

If you would like to give to St. Matthew’s, the easiest way is to donate online.
