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.

SCENT FREE CHURCH

Church Council is reminding everyone that we need to be a Scent-Free space as church.  We have people in our church family with life-threatening allergies to all scented products and we have a duty of care to ensure that we protect one another.  We ask everyone to refrain from using scented products, especially colognes, perfumes, after shaves, body sprays, and such as, by using them, you are putting others around you at risk for major health consequences.  Thank you.                                             

THANK YOU

Thessalonians 5:11

“Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.”

We often find ourselves in situations that call for teamwork and cooperation. Whether it’s in our families, places of work, schools, or churches, working together not only helps us to increase our effectiveness in accomplishing tasks but also helps to foster a sense of community.

Throughout the Bible, God teaches us about the importance of teamwork and encourages us to work together in order to succeed, using His own example.

To all our Serving Hands Team, volunteers, those who played an important part of the serving, purchasing of our Cold Plate Takeout and enjoying the fellowship of being a working church family on so many levels… thank you! You are ALL so appreciated!
