(Mt. Tabor Seventh-day Adventist Church)
Welcome to St. Matthew's Anglican Church!
We extend a warm welcome to you, whether you already know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and are looking for a church home - or if you would like to learn more about Jesus Christ, the Holy Scriptures and the Christian faith.
Our work with children and teenagers is of crucial importance to us. We pray that by providing a firm foundation of Christian education, our youngest members will each make a life-long commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ, become rooted and grounded in the faith, and develop a growing love for - and knowledge of - the Bible.
Our goal is to know Christ and to make him known, through expository Bible teaching, liturgical worship and prayer, with a commitment to discipleship, evangelism, mission and fellowship.

We are now studying the book of Acts
God inspired four people to write about Jesus' life, death and resurrection, but only Luke was inspired to write a sequel! His second book - Acts - begins with Jesus' ascension to heaven. Luke then describes the dramatic pouring out of the Holy Spirit; what life was like for those first believers in Jesus; the shocking conversion of Christianity's great foe - and Paul's work to make the Good News of Jesus Christ known throughout the world.
The book of Acts is a fascinating history and a riveting adventure, but chiefly it reveals God's message - and his method of spreading it. This is why Acts is so valuable to the church today, even though nearly two thousand years have passed since it was written. We need to hear the gospel message afresh and we need to learn again how it is spread.
Please join us on Sunday mornings as we learn from this amazing book - and please pray that we will grow in confidence as we learn what God's Holy Spirit can do with God's word in the lives of ordinary people who are created in God's image.
