The church is led by two elders.
Richard, with his wife Sandra, (to whom he has been married for 51 years), moved to Cambourne in 2016 to help support the new church plant. This was not exactly what they had planned over 5 years into retirement but they soon discovered God had other ideas!
Having originally trained as a mechanical and then a computer engineer, Richard has spent most of his working life in training in the engineering and manufacturing sectors albeit he has spent nearly 40 years in part time church leadership and ministry. He first trusted the Lord Jesus over 53 years ago when he first heard the gospel.
With 2 children, Rebecca and Matthew, and 5 grandchildren, (eldest aged 21), Richard now likes to keep active by gardening, building things for the garden and walking and cycling when time permits.
Ben helped to plant Christ Church Cambourne in 2016, and continues to serve as the full time pastor. Having grown up an atheist Ben came to believe the claims of Jesus after a friend gave him a copy of Mark's gospel to read!
Ben loved working as a secondary school teacher for seven years. He then trained for ministry with St Neots Evangelical church whilst attending Oak Hill theological college.
Ben is married to Suzy, and they have three children, Grace, Joel, and Evie. He enjoys a really good coffee (with cake!), the occasional run, and reading biographies.
