Morning church is full of all sorts of people, from kids to adults, new mums & old hands – but they all come because they believe that God has spoken to the world and that he continues to speak to us in the Bible.
We meet in the church building where we spend time thinking about God and his Son, Jesus Christ. Each Sunday morning we hear the Bible read and explained, we pray and sing with one another, and we catch up with one another over morning tea. A full children’s programme is run in conjunction with church at 9.30am.
We’d love you to come along and join us this Sunday morning! More information about what to expect if you come along on a Sunday morning can be found here.
Many of our regulars also meet in small groups during the week to spend more time reading the Bible with one another.
St Matthias Night Church is a group of sinners who have been undeservedly saved and brought together by Jesus. We meet each week to hear God speak as the Bible is read and explained, to speak to God in songs and prayer, and to enjoy the restored relationships that come from the gospel. Our meetings have a relaxed, contemporary feel, and all are welcome.
Our community life is all about doing our part in God's mission, sharing Christian life together, and helping one another to grow as disciples of Jesus. We get together during the week in Bible Study groups, and our high school-aged members gather at Matthias Youth on Friday nights.
Our main meeting happens in the church building on Sunday nights from 6pm to 7:15ish, then we hang around for a cup of tea and a chat after. We love visitors and welcoming new people into our family, so come and join us this Sunday!
BASECAMP is an annual event for men who want to know God better. Since 1997, men of all generations and from across denominations have taken time out together to hear God speak. Each year, men have encouraged each other to run the race with their eyes fixed on Jesus. Join a group of Matthias men for a six-hour recharge on Saturday 10 August, 9am - 3pm at the Roundhouse, UNSW. Email the church office for more information.
A PORTRAIT OF A MAN OF FAITH
What does it look like to live as a man of faith?
The Bible is clear that faith is not just something you do with your brain, but a commitment of your heart that radically changes the way you live your life.
For men, biblical faith is about living out of a new identity, one that is very different from the way the surrounding culture defines a man. This year at BASECAMP we will consider core characteristics in the life of a man that only grow out of the soil of faith in God.

THE SPIRIT OF LOVE - 22 June 2019
“Now these three remain: faith , hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” (1 Cor 13:13)
1 Corinthians 13 is such a familiar wedding passage, that we can miss it’s incredible impact in the context of 1 Cor 12-14. Why is love the greatest? And how does love change the way we use our gifts?
