The United Reformed Church has just announced two new appointments:
1. Coordinator for Fresh Expressions
Linda Rayner (pictured) has been appointed as the URC Coordinator for the Fresh Expressions initiative. She will combine her new role with her existing duties as Learning and Development Officer in North Western Synod.
Linda commented: “I believe that new ways of looking at church and new ways of bringing the Word of God to people is the way that the Church needs to move forward. Churches are beginning to look at modern-day culture and how we can reach out to those who have no previous experience of church or knowledge of Jesus. I’m delighted that the URC is supporting this new outreach.”
2. First FURY/Christian Aid Intern
Eighteen-year old Charis Unsworth (pictured) is to be the first FURY/Christian Aid intern, and will join the established Christian Aid Youth Volunteer Internship programme at the end of August. The overall purpose of Charis’s role is to support and encourage young people and youth leaders (with particular focus on FURY) to become actively engaged in global issues, through Christian Aid’s campaigns, worship materials and fundraising projects. Charis said, “I’m really excited to be part of the internship programme. It’s an amazing opportunity and I know I’ll learn and see a lot.”
