Thanks for your visit during this beautiful month of August!

A warm welcome to St. Matthias  -- whoever you are, wherever you are in your journey of faith or questioning.  

You are God's beloved and we invite you to come as you are and enjoy a warm welcome.  So:  long-time neighbour, first-time visitor, please know we will be delighted to see you! 

We are worshipping in person! It's summer, and we know many are visiting friends and family in the Victoria area (and similarly, folks are journeying away from Victoria).  If you're in town, we're delighted to invite you to  join us for worship at 10 am and stay for coffee afterward in the hall, to say hi!  

 St. Matthias warmly and genuinely welcomes everyone who comes through our door, including anyone who sees themself in the rainbow banner or the abbreviation LGBTQ2IA+.  So, when we say we welcome you "whoever you are," please know that our welcome is without condition or limit.  

At St. Matthias we join with all Canadians as we reflect on the complex, often painful, history that is the heritage we share, whether our families have been here since time out of mind, for many generations, or whether we are "brand new" to Canada.   Respectfully, we acknowledge the legacy of the residential schools. We listen.  We grieve.  We honour.  We commit to action.  

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!  All are welcome here.
