Ministries of Service

Mission Statement

Jesus said, “Love God and love your neighbor.” The Episcopal Church of Saints Barnabas and Matthew is a workshop for living this commandment, equipping the saints for ministry.”  

 Matt 22:37-39; Eph 4:11-12

Our vision is justice and peace among all people, and respect for the dignity of every living being.

Hallowell Food Bank

Contact – The Rev. Alicia Kellogg

St. Matthew’s Church supports the Hallowell Food Bank through board membership, volunteers, and weekly contributions of food and essential items.  If you would like to make a contribution, please feel free to bring your items to a Sunday service.  There is a basket to the left of the chancel steps in which to place your items.

Public Supper Ministry

Contact –

Our faith calls us to help those in need, to love one another, and to give of ourselves.  One of the ways the St. Matthew’s community fulfills this call is to feed the hungry at a public supper hosted by St. Mark’s Episcopal Church of Augusta on the first Saturday of every month.   The St. Matthew’s volunteers participate in every stage of the supper from setting up to chatting up to serving up to eating up to cleaning up.  Set up begins around 3:00 p.m. and clean-up is usually complete by 6:30 p.m.  For more information about this ministry please be in touch.  We’d love for you to join us!
