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!
St Matthias church has classes that provide an opportunity to practise speaking English in a friendly and relaxed environment. It is a great way to meet other adults with the same English level and develop supportive friendships.

Of all the everyday issues that Christians struggle with or are anxious about, “hell” is not high on the list. We don’t think or talk about it much. It’s not the subject of many articles, sermons or tweets—at least until some Christian leader comes along and says he doesn’t believe in hell anymore, after which there’s a brief flare-up of heated debate, and then the subject dies down again.
But whether or not we are very concerned about hell, Jesus certainly was. He talked about hell more than anyone else in the Bible; perhaps if he thought it was an important subject, so should we.
So, what is hell? Who is going there? And what difference does this knowledge make to our Christian lives? These are the questions Paul Williamson will address at our October event.
Paul Williamson teaches Old Testament, Hebrew and Aramaic at Moore College. His book Death and the Afterlife was recently published by IVP in their New Studies in Biblical Theology series.

Matthias Youth seeks to reach and inspire teenagers with the good news of Jesus. Meeting on Friday Nights and Sundays, youth from Yrs 7-12 gather to see that Jesus is relevant to their lives, and that He has the power to change their lives.
MYFriday - Kicking the night off, Youth meet together for a time of hearing about Jesus and how God is working in the lives of the teenagers amongst us. Following this, the Youth break up into their small groups for a time of deepening their friendships and getting stuck into the bible.
When: 6.45-9pm Fridays (except during school holidays)
