Meet The Team!

Leaders & Staff Members

Ian & Carole Rawley: Pastors
Ian became a Christian in 1974. After studying history in the USA, he read law at St John’s College, Cambridge and then completed his legal studies in London to become a barrister in 1980. Not long afterwards, he went to Bible College to prepare for ‘full-time’ Christian ministry. For 38 years he has been married to Carole, who had become a Christian in 1976. After a number of years in the world of teaching, she retrained and gained a Masters degree in Child and Adolescent Counselling. She works as a counsellor for two charities in Cambridge as well as overseeing our youth team and women’s ministry.

Ian and Carole have four adult children, one son-in-law and two daughters-in-law, and thoroughly enjoy being grandparents!
Martin Wilde: Administrator & Secretary Of NLC Trust
Martin lives in Impington with his wife and a small number of mainly unproductive hens. He has two grown up sons who he insists are much more talented and way better looking than he is.

Martin likes to organise things and to sing. Usually very loudly.

James Pearson: Youth Worker
James is from Stevenage and has been working with our Youth and Young Adults for many years now.

James is passionate about Jesus and Arsenal FC!
