Who we are:
We are a community of people from different places in the world, with different faith experiences, joined to worship and serve God, learn, and build relationships. Rooted in the South Worcester neighborhood, our landmark building (1893) houses a beautiful sanctuary with historic Tiffany stained glass windows, a contemporary chapel and a newly refurbished kitchen designed for community meals. We welcome everyone: inquirers, life-long disciples, long-time residents, newcomers, immigrants, college students, children, youth and families, singles, and seekers.
We are a diverse, faithful, “Home and Hearth” community. “St Matthew’s is high on the theological diversity scale and flexible with worship.” We are traditional, stable, secure, dependable, clear “guardians” welcoming, and grounded. The open posture of the Prodigal Father best represents St. Matthew’s. (Holy Cow Survey)
...marks our 150th anniversary (Sept. 21, 1871)
We are poised to continue building a worship community in newly renovated and welcoming spaces.
