London City Mission
Closing date: 16 July 2023
Matt leads an LCM team in Tower Hamlets, to mobilise churches in mission, and personally focusses on reaching Muslims and those from other religions.
Tower Hamlets is the one of the most deprived boroughs in London with many, especially children struggling with poverty, overcrowding, and economic issues. The community also has one of the highest concentrations of Muslims in London, mainly of a Bangladeshi heritage, alongside Sikh's, Hindu's and Buddhist's. 80% live in flats.
Matt partners with churches to develop ministries to build bridges into this multi-religious community, aiming to reach people who are least likely to be in contact with churches or Christians as individuals.
He says, "My vision is that in the next generation, our local churches are full of people from a wide range of nationalities and religious backgrounds all worshipping Jesus as Lord and Saviour."
