Cutting Edge (School Years 7-9)

Zone Leader - Matthew Heard

Kia ora and welcome to Cutting Edge for 2024!!!!

My name is Matthew and I am the Zone Leader for Cutting Edge.

I have been a youth leader for the past 6 years in both the Wairarapa and Wellington Regions, leading at a variety of youth groups including Old St Paul’s Cathedral, St Christopher’s in Tawa and St Thomas’s in Newtown.

The aspects I love most about youth work are observing young people come to know and journey with Jesus, their excitement and willingness to follow Jesus and personally having a role in shaping the future leaders of the church.

Outside of youth work, I am a ranger at Wellington Zoo where I run animal close encounters and give talks about a number of God’s amazing creatures.
