Kia Ora!

St Matthew Lutheran Church is in Abbotsford St, Whitiora, one kilometre from Hamilton city centre and within easy walking distance of most motels on Ulster and Victoria St.

We are a Christian congregation, rather like a large family who love getting together both to worship and to share the blessings of our Lord.

We continue to be amazed at how God reveals His love, understanding, grace and forgiveness to us and we continue to praise Him for the blessings of new friends and new experiences.

Please make yourself known to us when you visit us. We would love to have the opportunity to welcome and share God’s blessings with you in person!

St Matthew is a congregation “where love comes to life” as we seek to fulfil the mission Jesus gave to His Church. We aim to “Celebrate Christ’s gift to us, serving and witnessing to the people in our community.”

... a warm welcome to everyone.

… Bible study groups during the week with a choice of morning or evening.

… an enquirers class by arrangement for those wishing to know more about the Christian faith and          Lutheran Church.

and we ...
