Ben has lived all his life in Walsall, and has found a wonderful community of faith-filled friends at St Matthew’s. Ben attends The Evening Service and the 10.45am service.
Ben and his wife Izzy got married here in 2013, and have been involved in the spiritual leadership of the church in various ways since the late noughties.
Ben’s looking forward to receiving lots of help from everyone as he navigates a new role of churchwarden! He thinks there’s an incredible amount of talent and potential at St Matthew’s and wants to help others increase in their involvement.
Ben has recently started working as an electrician, which has shocked some people… Haha. Other than bad jokes, Ben enjoys finding unconventional solutions to problems and the first lap of Walsall Arboretum Parkrun.
