Leadership Team

Mat Hussain


I became a Christian in late 1988 having grown up in different faith, I would love to tell you the story some time! 


After 14 years in the IT industry I felt the call to go into Christian ministry and I haven’t looked back since. 


I am married to Joy, a school teacher, and we have three children.  I am passionate about telling people about Jesus, enjoy racket sports and dabble with playing the guitar.

Neil Mathieson


Born in West London, my wife, Nella, and I arrived in Thrapston in 2009.


I’ve been privileged to serve God on Leadership Teams at several churches over the years, and here at Thrapston Baptist I cover the roles of Administrator/Church Secretary and Treasurer. 


Now retired, we have two grown-up children and two granddaughters.


For fun I enjoy playing music; and as well as being part of the Worship Music team I play in ReStrung, a baby boomers folk-rock covers band.

Prayer & Pastoral

My husband, Eric, and I have lived in Thrapston since 1982.  I was a teacher in Thrapston Primary School for 23 years.

Since retiring, in 2013, I have been able to take a more active role in various church activities including leading our parent and toddler group. 


My cello playing has improved considerably since I joined the ‘Rusty Players' of Oundle.

All-age & Children

Having moved here in 2016 from Leicester and not knowing anybody, Frank my husband, Martin our son and I soon embraced a very warm and welcoming church family.


God soon led me to be part of the teams for the children’s work on Sunday mornings and the Pastoral Care Team, plus being involved in other activities.

My desire is to grow in faith in all I do as I serve God and my neighbour.
