Our church has a long history in Bedford, NY where we are respected and cherished by many in the community. We attract people of all ages with our embracing congregation, fun fellowship activities, beautiful facilities, multitude of involved members, and responsive staff. Parishioners are generally well-educated, active in the community and dedicated to the longevity of St. Matthew’s Church.
Like many Episcopalian churches today, we wish to encourage greater attendance and support by young families, both long-time members and potential members. We would like to increase our footprint on social media and the internet, and we strive to use technology as a way to connect members and promote fellowship. Stewardship is a concern in any church. In order to maintain our future financial health, we will need a minister who helps cultivate a sense of gratitude among the younger generation.
