Get to know Matt Beer
Married to Emily who is a Biological research scientist working in Birmingham, I lead Telford Minster, a recently planted resource church in the West Midlands. I am passionate about seeing people come to faith in Christ and develop a deeper relationship with him. I'm also passionate about the local church being the core of the local community and the hub of mission for towns and villages.
I came to faith as a child at a local church, having been introduced to Jesus by a friend. The importance of individual evangelism is a key value I hold on to. I love to see people growing in their gifting and ability. I have been involved in the New Wine network for both the summer conferences as well as leading the Shropshire network.
I love the outdoors with family and friends, and particularly walking our Sprocker Spaniel in beautiful countryside. I enjoy playing music, running, and spending time on and in water.
I trained for ordination at Ridley Hall Cambridge. I was ordained in the Oxford diocese in 2016 and served my curacy at St Mary’s church Bletchley before leading Telford Minster.
