Rev Matt Bownds



Matt is an English-born, Welsh-bred boy
who joined Highfields in January 2016 after

Ammanford Church. Prior to that he was
pastor of a church plant in Carmarthen,
having completed the EMW’s theological
training course in 2005.

in various management and training roles in
public and private sectors, having studied

Matt and Kath – speak Welsh!
