Hi I'm Matty and I'm from Newcastle!!!
This is my second year working in youth ministry. I came to Castlerigg for the purpose of wanting to explore youth ministry even more after I enjoyed a year of carrying out youth ministry last year at another youth centre in Consett in Durham, working with the schools from Hexham and Newcastle there.
I really enjoy working in a team with other people.
My hobbies include running, writing and spending time with my friends and family.
My favourite quote from the bible is Jeremiah 29:11, for I know the plans I have for you says the Lord, plans to prosper and not to harm you, plans to keep you safe and give you a future.
My favourite bible story is the story of Zacharias and the sycamore tree.
I'm really enjoying my time at Castlerigg Manor this year.
