Life Group & Seniors Co-ordinator
Our purpose is to strengthen the faith of everyone who has retired. Our mission (which follows the church’s mission) is for all seniors in our area to feel loved and supported while also being called and equipped to God’s mission.
- Tuesday from 11:30am
Every fortnight we have a church service with lunch afterwards. Every other Tuesday we have senior life groups meeting together for morning tea and then for a bible study till 1pm.
- Life Groups
There are a number of other life groups that meet during the day which are aimed at seniors. Currently they meet on Monday and Friday mornings and Monday and Wednesday afternoons.
- Finishing Well
This is a fortnightly group on Thursdays aimed at men who have retried or are thinking about retirement. They seek to think about how they will use their time, skills and resources in this next phase of life.
- Goodwin services
Every fortnight on Wednesdays we run a church service at Goodwin. These services rotate between being a Communion Service, traditional Morning Prayer service and a Songs of Praise service.

Thank you for giving to St Matthew’s. Our strong preference is for direct deposits, as we receive exactly the amount you give. However, we can also accept gifts via credit card through the button below. Please note however that a fee of 1.9% + 30c apply, such that if you give $100 St Matts receives $97.80. There is an option to ‘cover the fees’ which you can consider (this increases your giving by the fee amount, such that you would give $102.24 and St Matts would receive $100).
