Matt grew up in Kent where he was taught about the hope of Christ from a young age, although he didn’t recognise his own need for that hope until he was 15. On finishing school he travelled the length of England to study medicine in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. After qualifying Matt worked as a doctor in North East England for 7 years, as well as working part-time for the Christian Medical Fellowship along the way. In 2013 he moved back down the country to study theology at Oak Hill College in North London. He has been in Cambridge since 2017, first as Associate Pastor at Eden Baptist Church and now as Pastor at HCC. Matt is married to Anika and they have 6 children. He can often be found running, watching or playing any sport going (but cricket in particular!), or reading a good book, especially if paired with a fine single malt.
