Matt Porter (Children, Youth & Families Worker)


In the summer of 2017 my wife Sarah and I moved from Manchester to take up this role at St Margaret’s.

Each week I get lots of opportunities to speak and teach about Jesus, in schools, at our groups and working alongside parents. I made my decision to live as a Christian in my late teens and having people who were willing to listen to my questions and help me to read the Bible was vital for my faith. Now I try and do the same for others as they work out whether to follow God or not - it's a big decision but one well worth thinking about!

When I'm not working I enjoy spending time exploring the nearby countryside with Sarah or listening to sport on the radio. I studied English Lit and History at Lancaster Uni so also enjoy a good historical novel or film!
