A New Curate - Matthew Hodder


Matthew Hodder has recently been appointed as Assistant Curate in the Benefice of the Bexley Team Ministry, with the Team Rector, Reverend Ren Harding to be his Training Incumbent.


Matt will be moving to Bexley with his family in June 2020.


Bishop James Langstaff hopes to ordain him as Deacon on Saturday 26 September 2020. Mat is currently living in Cambridge where he is studying at Ridley Hall Theological Training College.


Please pray for Matt and his family as he begins his final year of Academic training, before completing his training with us.


By way of introduction- a note from Matt.

Hello, my name is Matt Hodder and I am really looking forward to joining the Bexley Team as the new Curate this summer. For the last three years my wife Jen and I, and our two children Zach (4) and Annie (18 months) have been living in Cambridge. I have been studying at Ridley Hall Theological College which has been a great joy, and we are really looking forward to starting this summer. Before training both Jen and I worked in primary schools. I worked as a teaching assistant and used to run the outdoor learning programmes, and Jen was a teacher in Reception and Key Stage 1.


I am thoroughly looking forward to starting in my new role and getting to know many of you over the coming months. Obviously, with the challenging times that we are living in at the moment our introductions might have to be quite creative, but nonetheless it will be great to be a part of the ministry and community with you all.


We are praying for you all during this time and will see you all soon,
