Mission and discipleship are essential elements of any church and St Matthews is no exception.
The mission of St Matthew’s is to reach out to those in the neighbourhood with the Good News of Jesus and His servants in need. (This is distinguished from our mission support which is where we support other organisations and individuals reaching out in mission). Many aspects of our mission are also shown in our mission action plan.
Discipleship is helping the people of St Matthew’s to follow Christ more closely. We do this in a number of ways including the groups and prayer meetings mentioned but also through general encouragement to read the scriptures and to pray individually.
