We meet EVERY Sunday night at 7.30pm. At St Matthew in the City, the big church on the corner of Wellesley and Hobson Streets in Auckland City. (Map) . Come along, we’d love to have you with us for our regular Holy Communion service and fellowship.

We are a caring Christian community for all people, especially those who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered or transsexual, their families and friends.

Everyone who walks through the door is respected, welcomed and encouraged in their faith. We are a community of faith, offering pastoral support and social outreach to the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered community; a place where friendships can develop, partnerships are openly celebrated and faith strengthened.

We wish to be a safe space to explore faith and sexuality.

We are a worshipping community holding regular services designed to be inclusive and welcoming to Christians of different traditions as well as those newly drawn to explore their beliefs or spirituality. Our Communion table is open to all people of faith, no mater how faint or tentative that faith is.

We experiment with different styles and formats of worship to reflect the diversity within our community. As a community of gay, lesbian, straight, transsexual and transgendered people we continue to build links with the wider church, working to have our voice heard, wanting to contribute our perceptions and perspectives on matters of faith, life, work and human sexuality in particular, which many churches continue to grapple with.

We are a community of faith, crossing denominational boundaries and faith borders,  an ecumenical expression of faith and witness.
