Our mission is expressed as a prayer:

We pray for our parish, St. Matthew’s, here in the heart of the city in the heart of God.

Let our church be like a great tree giving shade and shelter to all who come.

Under its branches let the people rest in your grace and be re-rooted in your kingdom’s work.

May the streets of our community be holy ground beneath our feet.

Our parish strives to be

  • a place of belonging, dignity and honouring of each other’s gifts
  • a place of compassionate action and engagement with our neighbours
  • a place of healing for ourselves and all our relations
  • a place to celebrate our faith with joy and intellect; and
  • a place of collaborative decision-making and table fellowship
