Welcome to St. Matthew’s!
We are a mid-size, family-oriented group of disciples who believe in opening our hearts to the community to be the restoring and caring hands of hope and healing. We do this through our worship of God, educating ourselves and our children, caring for each other and all of our resources, and by reaching out beyond our walls to serve others and our local community.
Come and be a part of this branch of the Jesus movement on the east side of Indianapolis!

The Rev. Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows was elected 11th bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Indianapolis on the second ballot Oct. 28 at Christ Church Cathedral Indianapolis.
Jennifer is 50 years old and is the first African-American woman elected to be a diocesan bishop in the Episcopal Church. She was elected with 67 votes in the clergy order and 82 in the lay order. Her election culminated a nearly two-year discernment and search process by the diocese at the 179th diocesan convention. The Rt. Rev. Catherine M. Waynick plans to retire in the spring of 2017.
