St Matthew's Anglican Church, Guildford

#6 of 9 in Things to do in Guildford
The only known garrison church in Western Australia, St Matthew's Anglican Church is filled with references to the past of the Swan Valley and its early pioneers. The original mud-brick church was the first to be erected in the Swan parish, while the present shingle-roofed edifice is the third church building reconstructed in 1873 after a cyclone destroyed the previous one. Set on a well-maintained green lawn with park benches and a kids' playground, this charming church can be seen from the inside only during Sunday services.

  • This church has been used by the Gunners of the Royal Regiment of Australian Artillery as their church for WA. It is also a very old local church and has very old monuments to pioneer families inside.  more »

  • Great experience,especially as its connection with the Australian Defence Force,since 1913.Really great Vicar at this Church
  • I have been able to accept and face the challenges of the 12 most challenging months in my life (now 72) because of the support, love and encouragement I have experienced from Rev. Katrina and her husband Jonathan who have personally shown me the meaning of faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and the miracles HE has performed for me. I have many more challenges ahead of me over the next 12 months but feel confident that being a member of the family and congregation at St Matthews in Guilford I will be able to face the unknown with confidence knowing I have the support of Rev. Katrina and our Lord Jesus Christ to help me. Praise The Lord.
