Outreach Activities title
Matt's Place
Matt’s Place was started here at St Matthew's in June 2007 by Bayside Community Care (part of Bayside Church), together with St Matthew's and Church of the Open Door. It has become a successful community meals program where people who are lonely or disadvantaged in the Bayside or Kingston areas can connect. St Matthew's provides all of the facilities for the Cheltenham run program and approximately 70 meals are provided each week but this number is growing.

Lunch at Matt’s Place in Cheltenham is served every Thursday at our Hall at 11.30am to 1pm.
