WELCOME!

 

Church members and Rev. Ann togetherWelcome to the St. Matthias website. St. Matthias Episcopal Church is an open and welcoming urban congregation, dedicated to understanding, living, and proclaiming the good news of  God’s love for all people.   We share energizing Sunday worship, encourage pastoral care for one another, and seek to promote spiritual growth through hospitality, Christian formation forums, educational programs, and community outreach activities.  Our life together provides varied possibilities for fellowship, spiritual nourishment, and service to others.

Located in the northeastern corner of Baltimore city on the north-south corridor of Belair Road, we believe that Christ comes to us both in the faces of our own parishioners and also in those of our community of neighbors.   Knowing that our mission is to love God with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength and to love our neighbor, as Christ has loved us, we seek to be good disciples through following Jesus’s Word.   We welcome all visitors and seek to build a community that is as diverse as the kingdom of God in all its fullness of racial and ethnic diversity and differences of age, economic class, gender, educational background, sexual orientation, and physical ability (our sanctuary and parish hall are wheel-chair accessible).

We cordially invite you to to come and see for yourself this joyful and engaging community of faith.  There is a place for you at St. Matthias, wherever you are on your faith journey.
