St Matts are looking for a 'Priest-in-Charge' to help lead us in this new season of transition and change. We have put together a Parish Profile which gives a snap-shot into the life of St Matts, what it's like to be part of the family here and who we are looking for. This will give you a flavour of the type of church family we have here and hopefully gets you excited about the opportunity to join us here in our #GodAdventureByTheSea.
St Matts has been on an incredible journey over the last 6 years, having its roots as a HTB (Holy Trinity Brompton) church plant and South West resource church. We have grown and developed key areas of ministry and outreach over this time such as: small groups, students and Alpha to name a few. St Matts is a diverse, life giving and vibrant community who seek to be light in this city and region, provide a home for anyone and make Jesus known.

We are looking for a strategic senior leader to oversee our church community and its future direction. As a transformational and collaborative leader, our new leader will continue the work of developing, empowering and releasing leaders. Being Spirit filled with a high value on the presence and gifts of the Holy Spirit, they will be able to help sense and enable all that God wants to do with our church family, whilst being firmly established as a member of that family. They need to be committed to their own personal and spiritual development and able to inspire others around them to an authentic life of faith.
If you would like further information, take a look at the Role Description to gain a better understanding of what the role entails and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.
With enthusiasm, hope, faith and an incredible team behind us, we can't wait to see what God wants to do in and through us here at St Matts. If you love Jesus, are passionate about sharing the Gospel and enjoy getting stuck-in, then we would love you to consider St Matts as your potential new home!
St Matts Plymouth is a vibrant and growing City Centre Resource Church launched in September 2016 at the invitation of the Bishops of Exeter and Plymouth and in partnership with Holy Trinity Brompton. St Matts exists to play its part in the evangelisation of the nations, the revitalisation of the Church and the transformation of society. Or, in other words, we want everyone to experience a life-giving relationship with Jesus and for that to impact their lives and the world around them.
St Matts aims to fulfil this vision by helping people to:
● KNOW GOD
● FIND FREEDOM
● DISCOVER PURPOSE
● MAKE A DIFFERENCE
This is a strategically important church within the City of Plymouth with a lively, Spirit-filled worshipping presence which overflows into practical expressions of Christ’s love.
As a resource church St Matt’s will continue to build on its outward looking vision as the Diocese looks for it to be a resource for the city which will include church planting, encouraging, and resourcing other churches across the city.
