All reviews by Noel Ramsey

Noel Ramsey was born in Belfast in 1960 and lived there for several years until his family moved to Newtownabbey. After school he worked for ten years as a Coachbuilder. After a football accident he was confined in bed for a month and it was during this time that he was challenged, through reading the Bible, to give up his job and go to Bible College. He completed a 3-year course, leaving in 1990. Noel and Sandra were married in 1985. They have three children, Jason, Sarah and Hannah. After Bible College training they spent one year working with the Mission to Mobile Homes in Lincolnshire. Their work was to tell mobile home dwellers about the Lord Jesus. They then spent over seven years in a church in Eston, Middlesbrough where Noel was the Minister. Noel became Minister of Scotton Evangelical Church, as Wensleydale Evangelical Church was then called, in March 1999.
