Meet some of the church...
Charlie and Emma Newcombe
Charlie Newcombe is the pastor of our church. He is married to Emma and they have three daughters. He was ordained in the Church of England in 2007, and has ministered in Wimbledon, Brussels and Cambridge.
I grew up in a village 10 minutes away from Huntingdon and after 12 years away, I moved back to the area. My work is based in Huntingdon, which was what originally drew me to join the church here and I've been a part of it since it started in 2018.
Sam and Sarah Hardy
Sam is a financial advisor and I (Sarah) am a teacher, though currently on leave as I look after our new baby who was born in November. We love being part of Christ Church Huntingdon, and the community in Godmanchester, where we live.
Katie and Johnny Pawlett
We have lived in Cambridgeshire since we got married 6 years ago and moved to Hartford in Spring 2018. Johnny is a primary school teacher and Katie is a structural engineer, and we had our first daughter in November. We love watching sports, trying new food recipes, playing music and going on walks.
I was born and grew up in Birmingham with Christian parents who taught me who Jesus is. Whilst at university, I saw what knowing Jesus and following him personally meant. Since then, I have interned for a church in central Cambridge, trained as a Maths teacher near Ely (though not completed) and now work as a computer programmer on niche accounting software. I have a terrible sense of humour to add to love of Jesus, people and maths, and enjoy combining the latter three as treasurer for Christ Church Huntingdon.
Ben and Jo
Ben and I (Jo) became Christians about 6 years ago, during our undergrad studies. We met at Uni, where we both studied Biochemistry. Ben has left Science to work in the Civil Service and I work in Scientific research. Ben is keen on racquet sports, reading and cooking. I play bass guitar occasionally and enjoy watching films.
