All are welcome at St. Matthew’s!  

We are a warm and welcoming congregation located in the heart of Conestogo, and a member of the Two Rivers Ministry Area.

We acknowledge that we meet and worship on the traditional territories of the Anishnaabeg, Haudenosaunee and Neutral peoples. St. Matthew’s is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the people of the Six Nations, which includes 6 miles on each side of the Grand River. We are located in Conestogo where the Grand and Conestoga Rivers meet. We are committed to forming alliances and solidarity with Indigenous peoples in our collective commitment to make the promise and the challenge of Truth and Reconciliation real in our community.

Whether you are a seeker or a visitor to the area, here you will be invited to explore your faith, ask questions and encounter the Divine Mystery that is the source of all life and creation.

In March 2023, we proudly adopted our new Welcoming Statement and Policy for St. Matthew’s.

United in Faith Ministry

In January of 2024, St. Matthew’s joined in a shared ministry with St. James, Elmira and St. James, St. Jacobs to form the United in Faith Ministry. More details about our United in Faith Ministry will be shared shortly.
