It started with community
The idea for Matthew’s House was born in mid-2016 when The Hill Church purchase a previously renovated Grade 2 listed building, called St Matthew’s. The building had a history of serving the poorest and most vulnerable, but due to sad circumstances it had been closed for nearly two years. The purchase was completed using funds donated by the church. This was then followed by months and months of volunteer hours being given to turn the building into Matthew’s House – a house of hospitality and hope in the heart of Swansea.
