St Matthew’s Anglican Church, serving the areas of Panton Hill, Hurstbridge and St. Andrews

We are an Christian community situated in the north east of Melbourne on the edge of the Yarra Valley. We are made up of people from all walks of life, people who live locally and people who travel from afar. We gather to worship God and desire to follow the ways of Jesus. Who is Jesus? do you have 4 minutes? Tom Wright here explains:

We are back.. again.

As restrictions have eased from 18th Feb 2021 we are now back again physically gathering at our church buildings. We request all who attend to please wear masks indoors at all times, sanitise hands upon entry, practice 1.5m social distancing and sign in and out for contact tracing. All are welcome to both our worship services – 8:45am Prayer Book service and 10:15 Contemporary/Family service each Sunday. If you are unable to make it to our worship gatherings we are live streaming a service on our Youtube Channel St Matthews Panton Hill every Sunday from 8:45am. If you would like an email notification of releases please subscribe to the Youtube channel or email

Christmas 2020

In preparation for Christmas we went through an advent series on Hope. Despite all that has happened in 2020 we Hope for God’s favour and blessings in 2021 through renewal, relationships and reaching out. 

Our 11pm Christmas Eve at St Andrews church and Christmas Day worship service in St Matthew’s Chapel were well attended which was a great encouragement and joy to see.
