Strengths

We are welcoming, energetic and engaged in our many ministries and programs.  Parishioners genuinely care about each other, our neighbors, and doing God’s work in the world.  Our youth programs are vibrant, and we have been averaging more than 20 8th grade confirmands in recent years.  Our music program has been an extremely important aspect of St. Matthew’s and engages all of our generations.

Challenges

We believe the assistance of a committed Rector can help us be more creative and innovative with our ministry of stewardship.  We also seek the help of a strong leader to harness and organize our efforts at outreach and mission; the will is there, the leadership and vision of our new Rector can truly help us focus these efforts. Our partnership with the Wilton Presbyterian Church has been a source of strength over the past almost 50 years.  Renewing and enhancing our relationship with our Presbyterian partners going into our next 50 years might be perceived as a challenge to some; we believe it is a tremendous opportunity to do more of God’s work in the world.
