The Anglican Parish of St Matthew's, Masterton
Our Parish Vision: To be a growing community where the love and hope of Jesus is real.
The Anglican Parish of St Matthew's, Masterton incorporates four worship centres:
- St Alban's, Taueru
- St Andrew's, Upper Plain
- St Francis', Bideford
- St Matthew's, Masterton
We celebrate Unity in Our Diversity with several styles of worship services.
We enjoy a culture of Discipleship that encourages all members and participants to be committed to various groups and programmes. To realise our mission statement we believe in discovering, “Who am I becoming?” and not just, “What am I doing?”
We are unashamed of the Gospel of Christ who has called us to be His disciples, and so believe all are welcomed to come as they are. It can make for a messy church, but Jesus knows our needs and through the Holy Spirit and our willing obedience will change all of us from being the last, the least and the lost.
Our aim is to be a safe and caring environment for those seeking to explore their faith in God Almighty, and His Son Jesus, through the work of the Holy Spirit. In the Parish of St Matthew's, Masterton, we incorporate Masterton, Upper Plain, Taueru and Bideford.
