Long Description:
St Matthews Anglican Church is a heritage-listed church and cemetery at 35 Church Road, Mitchelton, City of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. It was designed by Charles Tiffin and built from 1867 to 1869 by Mr Mahoney. It is also known as Grovely Church, as it is within the Parish of Grovely (a former Brisbane suburb name). It was added to the Queensland Heritage Register on 21 October 1992.


Description
The listing on the Queensland Heritage Register comprises all of the buildings, structures, sites, objects, planting and land with the exception of the rectory, which has been altered substantially. The buildings are all painted the same colour and are in good condition. The graveyard is well tendered.

The cemetery
The cemetery (used since 1869) holds the graves of many of the early settlers of the Grovely/Upper Kedron district including members of the Nicholson family. Monument styles vary, illustrating changing public tastes since 1869.

The lychgate
The lychgate (built 1980s), a memorial to Richard Henry Pickering, a trustee of the church, who died in 1976. The gable roof has fibrous cement shingles, while the sides are half stuccoed brick and half carved timber. The open sides repeat the Gothic lancet arch.
