Meet The Team!

Leaders & Staff Members

Ian & Carole Rawley: Pastors

Ian made a decision to become a follower of Jesus 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, becoming a barrister in 1980. Not long afterwards, he went off to Bible College in order to prepare for ‘full-time’ Christian ministry, in which he has been engaged ever since! For 38 years, Ian has been very happily married to Carole, who made her own decision to follow Jesus in 1976. After a number of years in the world of teaching, Carole re-trained professionally, acquiring a Masters degree in Child and Adolescent Counselling. She now works as a specialist psychotherapist in a local school, as well as overseeing our youth and women’s ministries. Ian and Carole have four adult children, one son-in-law and two daughters-in-law, and they 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 Leader

James grew up in Stevenage and became a Christian at 13 after joining a church-run youth group. After finishing A Levels he did a leadership training course with Soul Survivor Watford and then went on to get a degree in Theology. After working with a church in Stevenage for three years, James moved over to Cambridge where he has been the Youth Leader since 2012!
