Building to Grow and Serve
God is at work at St Matthews and we are seeing more people coming to put their trust in Christ and join our church family!
Our current facilities are insufficient for all the ministry and discipleship going on at St Matts. Stage 3 will give us dedicated rooms for K@Ch, meeting rooms for use for pastoral conversations, by LifeGroups and D-Teams and for the other meetings that happen each week. It will also allow us to be more generous to other Christian groups, who might be able to use our facilities.
Please pray for the builders, that they will be able to work quickly and that the work will come in under budget.
Pray for the various ministries of St Matts, that despite the interruptions that will come in the construction period, they might continue to thrive and see strangers become believers, believers become lovers and lovers become warriors.
Total project cost: $3.7 million
Builder: Cercol Construction Service
Construction period: March 2023 – April 2024
Contacts: John Harrison, Norm Barker and Phil Quinton
The total project budget is $3.7m. As at March 2023 we still need $2.3 million in additional giving to complete the project without borrowing money.
Every dollar will help.

Our Mission Partners
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:
