Linda Rayner

URC Coordinator for Fresh Expressions and mission shaped intro Coordinator

Linda Rayner joined the team in September 2011 as URC Coordinator for Fresh Expressions.

Linda is working as Fresh Expressions Coordinator for the United Reformed Church, which became a partner in Fresh Expressions in 2009. Her remit is to find out how local URC churches are establishing new ways of being church and encouraging them to explore Fresh Expressions.

Linda also heads up the development of our mission shaped intro course, continuing to develop and update the materials and encouraging the rollout of the course across the UK and beyond.

Linda formerly worked as Lay Learning and Development Officer of the URC North Western Synod, working with churches as they developed local mission strategies.

In her spare time Linda is studying for ministry, loves hiking in the beautiful Peak District and has recently taken up modern jive - 'more enthusiasm than expertise, but more fun than the gym!'
