The Reverend Matthew Griffiths

I was born and raised in Auckland in an Anglican Family.  After leaving high school, I attended The University of Auckland and completed a BA/BCom, majoring in English and Marketing.  I worked in telecommunications for three years.  I retrained in 1997 as a teacher and taught English in several schools.  My last teaching post was at Tamaki College in Glen Innes.  It was at Tamaki that my call to ordination became very real.  I had a sense that God had been calling me to ordination for some time and, prayerfully, I tested that call, and was discerned to train for ordination in 2013.

I am blessed to be married to Terrena and am also a proud father to Emily and Thomas.  Both are impressive young adults and Terrena and I are excited to see what their future will be.
