Welcome to St. Matthias Anglican Church!

Practicing the presence of God through faith and action in our community 

Welcome to the joyous Epiphany season!  Despite the pandemic, we believe there is deep joy to be found.  In our belief, this is focussed on Jesus: the Light of the World.  We remember the Epiphany (when the 3 Kings or Wise Men arrived), when Jesus' Light was revealed to folk of different tradition and different sources of wisdom.  In that spirit, we extend our wish that you experience light and joy in this season.

In-person public worship and community gatherings taking place in our facilities have been further suspended until at least February 8th.  Dean Ansley Tucker has made this announcement in compliance with the BC provincial health officer's updated public health order.

We welcome to join our online worship.  If you'd like to do so, please email   [email protected]  for the link.

When we're able to resume in-person worship, we will invite you to use the new "Plan Your Visit" feature, visible right here on the home page!  Meanwhile, please use the feature to book your visit to the Chapel Gallery.  

Our friends at AbbeyChurch also welcome you online, so please check them out at www.abbeychurch.ca

The Chapel Gallery invites you the next exhibit:  Walking Together, Alain Costaz - Victoria Edgarr, 22 January - 7 February.  See our News and Events Pages or follow the link to see an exciting preview!  https://www.stmatthiasvictoria.ca/ministries/the-chapel-gallery/pages/next-exhibit-walking-together

Please help us keep you safe by "planning your visit."  Please click on the black rectangle with white lettering "Plan Your Visit" visible on each of our pages.  There are 7 quick steps, but step 5 is a tease!  Please click on the map (to indicate the Chapel Gallery), then proceed.  There are more detailed instructions on the Chapel Gallery page.  Thanks for your patience!!

However, the church is more than buildings and programs. We are the body of Christ present in this world no matter where we are. We are a church without walls.

Thank you for your virtual visit.  Enjoy a sampling of our worship, by clicking on any of the events or items in the blog section of this page.  Whenever it's right for you, we'll be delighted to see you online or in person!

 Today, the way St. Matthias folk practice the presence of God in our community may look different, but it's still the same vision founded in faith, hope and charity.
