About Us

St. Matthew is a body of believers in God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. We are a Christian Church, gathered around and strengthened by God’s Word the Bible and His Gifts of Baptism and Communion. We confess the faith in the words of the Creeds and as explained in the Lutheran Confessions.

Our congregation was founded in 1894 by a group of families who came to settle the area. In 1905 we also started  a school; in those days, settlers often arranged for local education themselves.

St. Matthew Lutheran Church is known as a mother church for Lutheranism in Western Canada. From the work of the first pastors at St. Matthew in Stony Plain, at least 90 congregations were founded in Alberta and BC.

The congregation grew with the community and now has 1100 baptized and 800 communicant members from various backgrounds and home towns. Members come from all over the Parkland district and beyond. We are a member of Lutheran Church – Canada.
