NCD Teams


John and Lynn Chetcuti are the National Directors for Natural Church Development across the United Kingdom and Ireland.

Rev. Lynn Chetcuti

Lynn has served as a local church pastor for twenty years. She was a Vineyard Associate Pastor for fifteen years, in Reading, transitioning to Campus Pastor, planting and establishing the Vineyard congregation in Bracknell, and has subsequently led in an independent church setting. She is passionate about seeing both individuals and entire congregations identify their gifting, calling, and fully engaging in society to bring Kingdom transformation.

Working across all denominations, Lynn has served on the leadership team of Reading Christian Network, where she committed to see the Body of Christ thrive, investing in Christian leaders with influence across all areas of the community. She was a healthy church mentor with The Church of England, for five years, serving through Coventry Diocese, and leads Healthy Church for the Salvation Army across the UK.

Through NCD, at a national level, her desire is to make church health and personal discipleship growth accessible to every Christian leader and congregation, developing training and coaching resources and investing in the local church through to denominational leadership.

John Chetcuti

John had a full career in retail covering every aspect of business development, customer care, staff training,  and product selection prior to embarking on his current role in developing and supporting the ministry of NCD across the UK. He is a pastor at heart and works to make all Natural Church Development resources as accessible as possible to every individual interested in their own personal growth and investment in the work of the Kingdom through the local church.

John and Lynn have been married for over thirty years and have two grown-up children, Graeme and Dani, and the most gorgeous grandson CJ. They are now serving in Brookside Church, Earley, focusing on their passion, overseeing pastoral care and discipleship through small group development, hospitality and the integration of all members.
