Church Champions: Training

May Training Session: Talking Jesus




We’re incredibly thankful to Rachael Heffer from the Evangelical Alliance, who came to speak to us this week about the latest research from Talking Jesus, a study first undertaken in 2015, and had now been updated in 2022. There’s so much here for us to e encouraged by, but also a very real need for evangelism, especially amongst the older generations, so let’s get stuck in.

Rachael worked for British Youth for Christ for 13 years, most latterly as corporate director within the leadership team before working for four years with the Diocese of Ely as youth adviser – developing training, resources, and strategy for equipping churches in their outreach to young people. Rachael is married to Darren and lives in Ely, Cambs with her two sons, Jacob and Isaac. She is passionate about evangelism, mission, and church unity, and is very involved in her local church – overseeing the youth work and ministry to teenage girls in particular. She is a trained coach and mentor, loves travel, languages, shoes, and is a reluctant soccer-mum!
