Raising kids in a Jesus-Centred environment.


The Village is a new initiative at St Matt’s designed for families in every form.

Children in today’s society are growing up in a complex and challenging world. One of the complexities of our young people’s lives is the evolution of “screens”. The digital world is pervasive and constant for many young people today. Many of you will be facing these kinds of challenges in your own homes or see them in the homes of those you love.  As a church we want to assist those involved in the care and raising of our young people to be aware of the issues at hand and equipped to deal with them as best as we can. 

Our second event of the year is coming up fast! on the 19th of September, we will have Youthworks College Lecturer Time Beilharz presenting on the topic Reading the Bible with Young People. Families in all their wonderful shapes and sizes are welcome to join us.

If you don’t have children but are involved in parenting children in some other way, eg. Aunt/uncle, grandparent or God parent, we would love for you to come as well.
