Who are we?

People like you. Christians. “God-fearers.” Men and women convinced by the evidence for the existence of Jesus the Nazarene, and persuaded of his extraordinary claims by the astonishing miracles he was able to perform and the amazing difference he still makes today.

Specifically, we’re a “mission” of the Episcopal Diocese of Tennessee. Huh? An outpost of the "Anglican" movement in the heart of the Bible-belt: we represent a venerable, tried n’ tested blend of diverse elements developed in the High Middle Ages by the very first English-speaking “evangelicals” – translators and scholars of the Bible who felt drawn to separate themselves from a foreign-controlled church that had abandoned its calling: to be a “light” in the world; a place of transformation. Of “salvation.” This is what we aspire to be. Join us.


20170702 - McMinnville 2 (St Matthew's Episcopal Church)


We worship at 1000 on Sunday mornings every week (and also at 0800 in the summer). There are extra gatherings at Christmas and during Easter, when we come together to commemorate especially momentous events like Jesus’ birth, execution and his defeat of death. – Wait, he did what? Yup. And we've reliable eye-witness testimony that once he’d done that, he disappeared into the heavens, promising to share his power-to-change-lives with you and me. Come and learn more.

What else is going on?
