Matar is a Nuer-speaking Mission Centre. The Nuer people live in the border regions between Sudan and Ethiopia. They are traditionally pastoralists, following their cattle to water sources in the dry seasons.
The Matar Mission Centre will receive a new Deacon-in-charge in November 2016.
Matar has several daughter churches including: Rotlong; Burebiey; Tonyler; Tharkolang and Gade.
