Gehan & Majella's story
When we first arrived in Australia, we were looking for a church which would fill our spiritual needs. Having lived in the Middle East for a while and being unable to practice our faith frequently as a family, we were looking for a family-oriented church.
The first time we came to St Matthews we were impressed by the warm welcome we received at the door and how welcoming everyone was to our young family. Our girls were toddlers and our son was beginning primary school. We had found our oasis!
Our children have grown up and the journey from crèche to confirmation has been amazing. Our whole family has been blessed, including our parents, to have become a part of the St Matts community and this, combined with the teaching has strengthened our relationship with Jesus.
It is wonderful to be a part of a congregation that truly cares about the word of God and the wellbeing of all its members, as well as the wider community.
Majella, Gehan, Adrian, Leanne and Kiara David.
