|Description:||'Prayer is Poetic. It's finding words, pictures and metaphors to frame our experiences and name the divine in the details. In poetry we describe what's going on around us; in prayer we begin to inhabit the words we declare. Be Poetic'.|
Matt trained in Theology, Youth and Community Work and served in two churches before moving to France as a missionary, living in a Christian community on an old cider farm in Normandy. He has a passion for creative prayer and has co-ordinated the Prayer House at Spring Harvest and Youthwork the Conference. He is currently the Novice Guardian, and a member of the management team at The Community of the Tree of Life in Leicester.
