Later this year, our leaders will be in touch to discuss how you might serve in those areas of ministry in which you have expressed interest. For many of our ministries, we will run training events in the first term of next year. More information ASAP.
Please note that certain prerequisites are prescribed for all our ministries. This is to ensure that our volunteers are cared for, and to protect the integrity of each ministry.
In most cases, we ask that people be first of all regularly committed to church service attendance, and St Matthew’s Life Group attendance. This is because our priority is the Christian discipleship and growth of each person, in the context of closeknit community at St Matt’s. Serving in a ministry area extends out of this.
In all cases, we ask that all volunteers be committed to practicing safe ministry at our church. Many areas of service will have specific safe ministry requirements. The ACT Government’s Working With Vulnerable People (WWVP) can be applied for online. Anglican Safe Ministry Training is our denomination’s training in relation to safe ministry and abuse matters, and is offered online and in person.
Brothers and sisters, thank you for your continuing partnership in the ministry of the gospel of the Lord Jesus. We rejoice in serving alongside you in Christ’s mission.

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).
To give via direct debit, use the following details:
