ABOUT US

Mission Statement

As a Christian community on an exciting journey of faith, we strive to follow God’s loving ways by growing spiritually, reaching out to all and seeking truth and justice.

Brief History

The first church, for the Lewisporte Mission, was a log cabin which was constructed in 1876, the same year of settlement and served the Methodist community as Church, Sunday school, and Day school.  Then in 1903, Lewisporte became a separate charge, had its own resident minister and a new church was built on the present site of the Loyal Orange Lodge.  Due to its boggy conditions, at the time, the congregation deemed this second church to be unsuitable and a new church was built very close to our present building and opened in the Spring of 1916.

 

In 1925, the Methodist church of Newfoundland entered into a Church Union and became a part of the United Church of Canada.  In 1957, our church was officially given the name "St. Matthew's United Church."  Due to a significant growth in our congregation, it was decided that a new church building was needed.

 

And on March 15th., 1964 St. Matthew's celebrated the official opening and dedication of our present church.  

 

St. Matthew's United Church has played a very important role in the life of the Town of Lewisporte.   Its past has been one of continual physical and spiritual growth.
