Former Minister for Pontprennau -

Rev Matt Bownds



Matt is an English-born, Welsh-bred boy
who joined Highfields in January 2016 after
serving as a Pastor on the team at
Ammanford Church. Prior to that he was
pastor of a church plant in Carmarthen,
having completed the EMW’s theological
training course in 2005.

Before that Matt worked, for about ten years,
in various management and training roles in
public and private sectors, having studied
law at university.

– Thomas and Sofia, both of whom – unlike
Matt and Kath – speak Welsh!

In January 2019, the Pontprennau congregation formed the basis of the new independent church: The Bridge Church
