Acknowledgement of Country
We acknowledge the triune God, the Creator of heaven and earth and His ownership of all things. (Psalm 24:1) We recognise that He gave stewardship of these lands upon which we meet to the First Nations Peoples of this country (Acts 17:26). In His sovereignty, He has allowed other people groups to migrate to these shores. We acknowledge the cultures of our First Nations Peoples and are thankful for the community that we share together now. We pay our respects to the Whadjuk People, their elders and leaders, both past and present, and those who are rising up to become leaders.

ABOUT OUR CHURCH
St Matthew’s was the first church to be built in the Swan Parish, although originally it was not consecrated in Stirling Square. It was a rectangular mud-brick church, measuring 40ft x 20ft x 11ft high, built on land donated by Governor James Stirling on his Woodbridge estate, at the east end of Terrace Road, next to where Guildford Grammar School Chapel now stands.
9:30AM service offers creative ways for children to learn about the Jesus, through song, games, craft, memory verses and much more - great fun.
Messy Church on 4th Saturday of the month @ 4PM in the hall.
Family together, creative fun, songs, story telling and science all topped off with a bring and share meal.
