Here you will find a variety of material. St Matthew’s has always been a church engaged in a wide range of social justice issues: from poverty to peace, from tino rangatiratanga to apartheid in South Africa, from LGBT equality to climate justice. St Matthew’s folks are also engaged in their local communities and in the central city of Auckland. We are located between the Auckland City Mission and the SkyCity Tower and the future Convention Centre. We serve and engage with the poor and the rich alike. Material here is tagged by issue so you can find each group of videos easily.
