Welcome

Thank you for visiting my website. Here you will find news and information about me and my ministry as well as blog posts to point you towards Jesus, books and songs as well as a calendar of events – where I hope to see you soon. If I am not in your area, please get in contact and we could arrange a visit?

I am passionate about making Jesus known and pointing people towards Him. All articles are free to access. All songs come with free chord charts and audio samples, however sheet music is available for purchase from the shop as well as professionally recorded CDs and books that I have written.

I would love to give you a free song download and to keep in touch with you – so if you subscribe to my email newsletter, I will give you a free MP3 download of my song ‘Ten Thousand, Thousand’.

Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you again soon, either online or in person.

Together in Christ – Matt McChlery

    Beautiful Rain is a poetic song I wrote with my friend, Diane Devine. It started off as her original idea and she invited me to come alongside and help her finish it off. I like the metaphorical elements of the song – something that is not used very much in worship songwriting these days –

  • Here are the songs we sung at our all-age Pentecost celebration. As we blended two congregations together for this special event (our Messy Church and our Sunday Church) I chose songs that would reflect both equally well.
