OUT OF THE COLD

St. Matthew’s is one of more than 50 religious and charitable organizations in the GTA participating in Out of the Cold. This program, run entirely by volunteers, provides food, shelter, and clothing to those in need, in a manner which respects their dignity and self-worth.

FOOD CUPBOARD

The Food Cupboard is open each Wednesday from 10 a.m. to noon. Everyone at St. Matthew’s, and other organizations and groups who use our church facilities, donate food. Each week volunteers prepare food bags for people who come to our doors seeking help.

INDIGENOUS ISSUES WORKING GROUP

St. Matthew's supports Indigenous groups locally and nationally. Our Indigenous Issues Working Group provides information and experiences to expand our knowledge related to Truth and Reconciliation Recommendations.

 

HELPING HANDS

Opportunities to get involved at St. Matthew's abound.

CHANCEL GUILD

Men and women of the Chancel Guild prepare the church for all the services. We work in pairs one weekend or less per month. Tasks involve setting up the altar and credence table for each Sunday morning service on Saturday mornings, usually no more than an hour,  and tidying up after each service on a Sunday morning.  For the special times of the Church year, Christmas, Easter, and Thanksgiving, extra attention is paid to beautify the church with flowers, fruit, vegetables, and colourful seasonal hangings. Our flower coordinator chooses and arranges seasonal flowers for each Sunday.  New volunteers are always welcome.

MUSIC

Outside of COVID-19 pandemic safety precautions, St. Matthew's has a choir for our 11 a.m. Sunday services, and a praise and worship group for our 9:30 a.m. Sunday family service. The Music Ministry also participates in holiday services, concerts, recitals and outreach projects.
St. Matthew's welcomes all to join the choir and praise and worship group, which rehearse Thursday evenings.

FRIENDS FOR FRIENDS

A dedicated team of volunteers helps people who can't get to St. Matthew's anymore stay connected with phone calls, emails, letters, greeting cards, and Christmas baskets.

PRAYER CHAIN

Since 1980, St. Matthew's has had a team of people who support people with prayer. In 40 years, this chain of prayer—connected by phone, email, and God's love—has honoured well over 1,300 requests.

HOSPITALITY

Hospitality is an important part of St Matthew's community. Throughout the year, we help at special events, provide coffee and refreshments after each Sunday service, and lunch after the Wednesday morning service. It doesn't take a lot of time, but our efforts are appreciated.
