Donate to St. Matthew's Redevelopment
This heritage church built in 1924 has beautiful acoustics and plain arched windows in the Methodist style. Help keep the doors open for community use and for worship by making a donation to our redevelopment fund.
As congregations shrink, St. Matthew’s has grown to play an outsized role in the St. Clair West community. It is home to the Hippo Nursery School, operating here since 1969, the Wychwood Open Door day-time drop-in and the First Interfaith Out of the Cold. It also provides space for artists’ studios, yoga classes, Girl Guides, children's programs, piano lessons, fencing, concerts and community meetings. Public Recordings Theatre has used the church for its popular productions. Animation Portfolio Workshop is training a generation of young artists within our walls.
Offering affordable space for community use is part of the mission of St. Matthew's Church. We'd like to tailor our spaces for users and upgrade the aging heating and other systems so the building is more efficient, accessible and more comfortable for all. The vision is a community centre that is self-sustaining, run by a board that represents our users. At the same time, we'd be preserving and repurposing a beautiful heritage building.
Our capital campaign aims to raise $1 million to keep St. Matthew’s at the heart of this community. You can help. To learn more.
