Lyn started her role as Diocesan Missioner with Chester Diocese in June 2016. Previously, Lyn spent her career spanning 27 years leading major strategic change in several global organisations, predominantly in the Financial Services sector. In parallel to this, over the last fourteen years, Lyn has led a number of ministries in the Parish of Heswall, most specifically amongst Family & Children’s Mission and Ministry. She also had a wonderful experience leading a ministry in Liverpool Cathedral for a period of time amongst Persian Asylum Seekers. Lyn felt a calling to leave behind her corporate career whilst leading a Mission Team to Uganda in 2012, where she witnessed Total Community Transformation as the Church shone like an illuminated beacon amongst desperate social deprivation. This vision has inspired Lyn to enthuse others to apply relentless focus on the Five Marks of Mission and transform our local communities as we live out the Gospel.
Lyn’s ordination as Deacon on July 2nd, 2017 at Chester Cathedral was a special occasion for all of the family and we celebrated back in the parish with an afternoon tea in St. Peter’s Centre.
