A warm welcome to St Matthews.

Welcome to St Matthews, a friendly Anglican church in the Brisbane suburb of Holland Park. We hope you’ll take a few moments to look around and get to know us.

At St Matthews, we pride ourselves on being a caring community of enthusiastic Anglicans, welcoming new members, serving the local area and encouraging each other to grow in faith.

Our vision is to be a centre for Christian spirituality in Holland Park, where people of all ages come together in worship, fellowship and service. We provide a range of activities that support this vision – such as Christian Meditation and Men’s Breakfast. Throughout the year, we also offer a broad range of informative and inspiring faith formation courses as well as opportunities for spiritual regeneration through half day retreats and Labyrinth Walks. Follow our events calendar for details.
