Matt Aldridge has recently joined the Transform Work UK team and will be working alongside us in Reading at Work

 

 

I grew up in the New Forest in a Village called Lyndhurst and gave my life to the Lord at an early age. After attending an Alpha Course about eight years ago, the Holy Spirit revealed to me through the Book of John that I was to focus my life on loving God with all my heart and to show his love to those I encountered. 

 

After working for a Publishing company in Basingstoke for seven years my job transferred to Kings Cross. What appeared to be a short term inconvenience to my career plans in fact turned out to be part of Gods bigger plan for my life! Whilst working in Kings Cross I attended the lunch time ministries run by St Helens at Bishopsgate at a pub in Kings Cross station. It was during this time that God gave me a heart for workplace ministries. From receiving colleagues turn down invitations to church based events I found they did attend the lunchtime gatherings where they would hear the gospel in familiar surroundings. 

 

After  my time at Kings Cross had come to an end I started working for my current employer Quintiles on the Reading Green Park business Park. From putting out Facebook messages and meeting with Jamie Carter from Carey Baptist I was introduced to Dave Law at Reading at Work and Transform Work UK. Through Gods provision and guidance the small  group at Green Park continues to grow and God has placed on my heart that I should serve him through the work at Transform work UK.
