Mat - Minister
I became a Christian in late 1988 having grown up in different faith, I would love to tell you the story some time!
After 14 years in the IT industry I felt the call to go into Christian ministry and I haven’t looked back since.
I am married to Joy, a school teacher, and we have three children. I am passionate about telling people about Jesus, enjoy racket sports and dabble with playing the guitar.
Having moved here in 2016 from Leicester and not knowing anybody, Frank my husband, Martin our son and I soon embraced a very warm and welcoming church family.
God soon led me to be part of the teams for the children’s work on Sunday mornings and the Pastoral Care Team, plus being involved in other activities.
My desire is to grow in faith in all I do as I serve God and my neighbour.
I have been part of TBC since 2006, having lived in Thrapston most of my life. I was baptised and received into church membership in 2008. I’ve been an active part of the church for many years now, principally as part of the worship band.
The Lord led me to stand for leadership in June 2021 as we all emerged from lockdown. I am passionate about seeing our church body grow in their faith, being firmly rooted in God’s word and living this out in the town of Thrapston and beyond.
