Alleluia! Christ is Risen!

Welcome and thank you for your visit.

Thank you for visiting our webpage, which is still pretty new for us.  Come visit with us in person.  We have lots to offer; we invite you to join us at any or all of our special events.  Because we’re “church,” we also hope you will feel welcome to attend any or all of our worship events.

We are now in the Fifty Days of Easter.  Each Sunday we celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus with the Lord’s Supper, including readings from the Christian scriptures, hymns and anthems, praise and preaching. Our Godly Play children’s program is held at the same time and welcomes each child with respect and joy.

Whether you join us for a worship service, meditation time, a social event, children’s programs, or concerts, you will find a warm welcome. We are located in the Fairfield neighbourhood, but our hearts and members cross the Greater Victoria area.

Our commitment to the love and teachings of Jesus Christ is active. Visit our busy campus and see some of our commitments. Christ Church Cathedral Junior Kindergarten and Childcare is at the western end of our property. Next door, you will find Rogers Court, apartments for low-income seniors. On the lower floor of our community hall, the Threshold Housing Society office coordinates programs to provide transitional housing for youth at risk.  (Help Threshold even more directly on the 4th Saturday morning of the month and bring your bottles and plastic recycling!)

St. Matthias is a busy place and we’d love to have you alongside. You may know that we are sponsoring a refugee family from Syria, and we are excited to say the process is moving along very well!  On Saturday, February 6th, we will continue our series on End of Life Issues.  We’re holding some exciting concerts in the next few months.  Keep up with us on our News and Events page.

Welcome to Our New Website

This site is designed to make it easier for both members of the St. Matthias community and our newcomers, neighbours, and visitors to learn about us and our activities. In addition, we have a Facebook page, filled with photos from our various activities. Our rector, the Reverend Bruce Bryant-Scott, writes a blog, The Island Parson.  Our Music Director, Jim Hill, has his own webpage with extensive information about music programs at St. Matthias, our choral scholars, and his own music programs. The site is at:  http://themusicatsaintmatthias.com/
