Ministry is service. We are all called to serve our God who has first loved us and served us. We are called to serve both the family of God and the world.
All who have been called to serve God have also been called to ministry. Each one of us has been given resources that are at our disposal to use in service of God, the church and the world – namely our time, our treasure and our talents.
A mark of commitment to God and his people is sacrificial giving of our time in the midst of life’s busyness.
At St Matt’s we are convinced that generosity is a mark of spiritual growth, and shows that we understand the depth and generosity of God's grace.
Part of belonging at St Matt’s is investing financially in our life together and the activities we believe will help us to grow, so we want to challenge each other to prayerfully and sacrificially give within our means for the growth of God's people at St Matt’s and beyond.

We should be seeking to serve primarily in a way that allows us to use the gifts we have been given by the Spirit. However, because gifts are given for the sake of others (i.e. they are about ‘need’ more than self-fulfilment) we should take opportunities to serve others as we are needed.
