You may not want to serve on a committee, but may wish to participate in some other way.  Volunteer to be a Scripture Reader, an Usher/ Greeter or a Coffee Time Helper.   We always need Sunday School teachers and Helpers.  If you would like to volunteer please call the church office at (905)884-3606 or speak to someone after the worship service.

St. Matthew's does a lot of fundraising.  To give you of sample of this active work by our committees:
  • English High Tea (February)
  • Strawberry Supper (June)
  • Beef and Salmon Dinner (October)

  • Annual Bazaar (November)
