Tim Matthews

Senior Pastor

My role is as Senior Pastor (“Vicar”), leading the church in its mission in Bournemouth to love God, love people and love life.  Having previously been an Accountant in London and Academic in Cardiff.

My favourite book is The Spy Who Came in from the Cold by John Le Carré, or maybe Martin Luther King’s, A Knock at Midnight. But then there’s The Cruel Sea by Nicholas Monsarrant…and The Return of the Prodigal Son by Henri Nouwen.

Outside of work I love messing about with my family and anything to do with the Great Outdoors or water sports.
