The work of St. Matthew’s  Outreach Committee is never ending; those with needs are always with us and require our help. At St. Matthew’s, we support organizations where our donations will make the biggest difference.

Youth Kitchen

The Youth Kitchen is a program that teaches kids to cook and is operated by neighbouring schools and church volunteers.
They meet Tuesdays at 2:30 in the Church Hall Kitchen and have a great time.


The St. Matthew’s Messenger is published quarterly for the parishioners of St. Matthew on-the-Plains Anglican Church. All questions or concerns should be directed to the Newsletter Editor c/o St. Matthew’s Church Office, 126 Plains Rd. E., Burlington, ON L7T 2C3 Call 905-632-1233

If you have an article, poem or funny for our Newsletters please forward it to Gerry at office@stmatthewburlington.ca


This is a collaboration of people from East Plains United Church, Holy Rosary Catholic Church, West Plains Anglican Church and St. Matthew’s Anglican Church that have come together to serve up lunch and friendship to Aldershot seniors on Mondays at 12:00 noon.

Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund

Support to this worldwide relief fund is through the use of our blue church envelopes and special PWRDF envelopes distributed throughout the year.

St. Matthew’s House

This is an Outreach Ministry of the Diocese of Niagara and our own Parish. St. Matthew’s House offers many services to a needy community. During the month of May, all non-perishable food items from our basket are sent to St. Matthew’s House in Hamilton.

Several members of the church and Mothers’ Union make baby layettes for new mothers. Several children are sponsored to attend summer camp each year by the A.C.W.

Partnership West Food Bank

Partnership West, our community food bank, is always in need of non-perishable food items. There is a basket in the Narthex for food and a Big Jar is provided for those who want to contribute Loonies and Toonies. Financial donations can also be made directly to Partnership West.

Halton Women’s Place

Halton Women’s Place is a shelter in our community where battered women and their children can go to find refuge. We try to keep informed of the needs of the centre and respond when we can.
