Matt grew up on a council estate where he discovered Jesus and a sense of community within the local church. With 15 years of ministry experience, he began his journey serving as a youth pastor. Today, he leads our church plant in Barton, known as Barton Community Church. Matt pursued his studies at Oxford Bible College and is currently enrolled at Bristol Baptist College, working towards becoming an accredited Baptist Minister. Married to Charlotte, he is a father to two children. Matt’s passions extend beyond ministry; he enjoys all kinds of sports, both as a spectator and a participant. Additionally, he finds joy in playing computer games and building PCs.

Matt’s heart lies in ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to experience the love of Jesus within a community brimming with joy, hope, and individuals committed to living out the values of Jesus’ Kingdom together on a journey of discipleship.
