The Full Story
The parish of Sherwood ministers through two churches, St Matthew's on the corner of Oxley and Sherwood Roads, Sherwood, and St John's in California Road, Oxley. There are four congregations within these two churches: at
St Matthew's there is a 7am prayer book communion service and a 9am contemporary service, one of which is a monthly MICSA (Messy Intergenerational Church Sherwood Anglican) service, while St. John's has a weekly
8am traditional sung communion. There is also an additional service Tiny Tots catering for the younger children and carers on a Tuesday morning following the MICSA Sunday service.
Our vision is of a church that looks upwards and works outwards: A God- centred community that serves Him faithfully in all aspects of life and is committed to making and nurturing disciples who show and share God’s love in the community.
We aspire to be:
Rooted in Christ, dedicated to worshipping Him and seeking to follow Him through prayer, worship and the study of His Word
Grounded in serving our local community with the love and compassion of Jesus
Flourishing through the use of all our talents, and marked by respect for each other as fellow members of the body of Christ.
