Parish Ministries

St. Matthew’s has a long standing relationship with the Asheville Buncombe Community Christian Ministries (ABCCM), a local non-profit that serves the needs of the poor in Buncombe County. We support them financially in the annual Church Budget. We collect food and clothing on a weekly basis. We participate in their Christmas Angel program to provide a Christmas for needy families.

Canterbury Classical School is a classical Christian school located at First Nazarene Church in West Asheville. It is currently for grades K-7. This ministry is separately incorporated as a non-profit in the State of North Carolina and also has been designated as a 501(c)3 corporation by the IRS. The school is a joint ministry of St. Matthew’s and Redeemer Anglican Church of West Asheville. See the school website at
