Touchless Clothing Drive

St. Matthew’s touchless clothing drive met with great success. Our stalwart volunteers stood in cold, rainy weather to receive bags of clothing from 25 donors. They then drove three carloads downtown to the Toronto Urban Native Ministry (TUNM). Well done, St. Matt's, and special thanks to Marguerite Locke, Nancy Hurn, and Deborah Hurn for making it happen.

World Day of Prayer 2020

About 35 people gathered at St. Matthew's on March 6, 2020, to pray for Zimbabwe, that its people might achieve a peaceful political transition. St. Philip's Lutheran, St. George's Roman Catholic, and St. James' United also participated. The theme was "Take up you mat and walk" based on John 5:2-9. Many thanks to the World Day of Prayer Committee of Zimbabwe.

Feb. 2020 Messy Church: God's Family Around the World

On Saturday February 29th, we learned about children in other parts of the world and things they like to do. We made soccer balls from newspaper and string, had bicycle-wheel races, and met someone from Sleeping Children Around the World who told us more about children's lives in different countries. We also explored the challenges of clean water we face, even in Canada.
