Assistant to the Director - Matthew Evans

Matthew Evans has been appointed as Assistant to the Director with effect from 1 March 2011.

Matthew grew up in Wales and was converted as a teenager at his local Baptist Church in Llandrindod Wells, Powys. He worked with the Evangelical Movement of Wales for a number of years, both as General Manager of their bookshops and latterly as their Administrator at their headquarters in Bridgend.  He then joined the staff team of Cornerstone Church, Nottingham where he was for seven years, before being called to the pastorate of Rock Baptist Church, Cambridge. He enjoyed ten wonderful years there before moving on to join Affinity in March 2011 (and so linking up again with Peter Milsom with whom he worked during his time with the EMW!). He is married to Alison and they have two adult children, who both live in Cardiff. Matthew and Alison live in Cambridge.
