To All Church Members Far and Wide
Due to the latest directives issued by the government concerning the Corona Virus, all church buildings will be closed until further notice.
Our pastoral care and ministry is a key feature here at St Matthew's and we fully intend to continue to deliver those services to you and our community.
We are therefore going to utilise virtual tools to broadcast prayer ministry and collective worship programs so we can provide as many opportunities as possible for mission and outreach to our
community in order to be able to engage with you all throughout the duration of this challenging period. Details of how to access these on-line sessions will be shared with you shortly.
In the meantime, if you require pastoral support, or need someone to pray with you and on your behalf please reach out to us here at
