Gift Day

St. Matthew’s Anglican Church is one of the oldest and most prominent religious institutions in Nassau, the capital city of the Bahamas. It is part of the Diocese of the Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Islands within the Anglican Communion.

The church’s history dates back to the early 19th century, when the Anglican Church established a presence in the Bahamas. The first St. Matthew’s Church was a small wooden structure built in 1802. It was later replaced by a more substantial stone building in the early 1830s. This new structure, completed in 1836, served as the primary place of worship for Anglicans in Nassau for many years.

Over the years, the church underwent various renovations and expansions, with its distinctive pink fa├žade becoming an iconic symbol of Nassau. The interior of the church is adorned with beautiful stained glass windows and traditional Anglican furnishings, reflecting the enduring influence of the Anglican tradition in the Bahamas.

We continue to say thanks to all who have thus far made their contribution to the Annual Gift Day.
Members who were not able to give yet or have not completed their pledge can still do so in the coming weeks.

Remember, the proceeds from our Gift Day this year will go toward funding the unexpected but much-needed maintenance on all of our buildings.
