About Matt McChlery

Matt McChlery has been writing songs for 25 years. After recording his first single in 2002, he won various awards for his songwriting and blog, racking up airplay on hundreds of radio stations around the world, including the occasional appearance on television. His songs are also sung in numerous churches around the globe.

Songwriting runs in the family. His great, great, great grandfather, Rev. Sabine Baring-Gould wrote the classic hymn ‘Onward Christian Soldiers’. Matt believes he carries some of the anointing as part of a generational blessing, as well as an individual mantle and calling upon his own life for songwriting and leading worship.

Matt, who was born in Zimbabwe, lives with his wife Verity and their two children in the UK. He is a Deacon at his local church - The King’s Church, Wisbech - where he preaches, leads worship and works on the strategic development of the church. As well as being an author, he continues to point people to Jesus in all his does.
