Who are we?

A member of NCC since 2009, and part of our leadership team for many years, Clare became Pastor of NCC in 2020. She and husband Chris have two teenage children, a much loved dog, and an assortment of chickens. With a background in primary school teaching, in church, Clare’s passion is for preaching and teaching from the Bible, and empowering and enabling others to fulfill God’s calling in their lives.


Helen has lived in Newmarket for over 30 years and has been at NCC since it was first planted out from Isleham Baptist Church. She is married to Brian, with a teenage and an adult child and a very friendly dog. After initially qualifying as a chartered accountant, Helen then gained a teaching degree and she now combines the two by working as a Finance Trainer at Cambridge University. Helen is part of our preaching team, and runs our CAP money course. Her hobbies include photography and road cycling (which she likes to combine with coffee and cake)
