Due to current restrictions our youth are not meeting onsite. Please see the [email protected] Youth page for details.

Who we are

St Matt’s Youth is a community of young people seeking to reflect the generosity of Christ in both word and action. We seek to welcome people without prejudice and share the love of Jesus without compromise. If you are a high school aged student we would love you to join us on Friday nights and Sundays and get involved.
