Having worked on ministry staff to women for a large non-denominational church in New England, I know the right speaker can make your event run smoothly and, at the same time, be life-changing for all involved.
My passion is to lead women of all ages into healthy relationships with God, with other people and with themselves. I particularly like to connect with women in their 20s and 30s, both those who know Jesus and those who do not.
Here’s an overview of this page. I hope it will help you start a conversation with me about speaking at your event:

When Rachel Britton speaks - I listen - because I grow. She speaks with depth, with relevance, and with passion because Rachel speaks from a heart that desires to know God more. Whatever your age or stage, you will be enriched by Rachel's message.
Dr. Cynthia Fantasia
Former Pastor of Women, Grace Chapel, Lexington MA
Rachel Britton has been a guest speaker for several years consecutively on the "Girlville Cruise". Her gentle, sincere delivery is genuine, palatable and extremely well received. Rachel offers wisdom practically and prayer specifically in such a delightful manner, everyone listening leaves wanting more of this mystery called, "prayer."
Kim Bolton, Christian Speaker Singer Musician
Rachel has been a speaker at our Iron Sharpens Iron for Women's conference for the past two years. She has a heart for women and is able to relate her passion of exercise and prayer in a way that's relatable. Her workshops were filled. Rachel's lovely accent makes her that much more enjoyable to listen to. I highly recommend Rachel as a speaker.

MORE ABOUT ME
I am a British-born speaker, author and blogger.
In 2011 I graduated, cum laude, from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary with a Masters in Religion.
I speak at women’s retreats, church events, and conferences, as well as participate on speaking teams. In addition, I co-director a conference for writers and speakers called reNEW – retreat for New England Writing.
Through my 501(c)(3) non-profit organization I help women beyond the normal boundaries of our western world. My goal is to be a voice for refugee women; to bring awareness to their situations and suffering and offer dignity and hope through providing for their physical needs. In particular, we are working with South Sudanese refugees in Uganda and refugee women from places such as Syria, Iran and Iraq in Greece.
I am married to Colin, also a Brit, and we have three young adult children. We live between New York City and Breckenridge, Colorado. We like to travel “home” across the pond as well as to other places in the world.
I would love to travel to your event!
SAMPLE SPEAKING CLIP
From Iron Sharpens Iron for Northeast Women, Worcester, MA, October 2015
MY TALKS FOCUS ON:
- learning we can be bold on the journey whatever our circumstances, and teaching practical ways to trust God in the middle of difficult situations.
- mastering how to pray so we are changed on the inside and turn a corner with our relationships on the outside.
- encouraging women to take one step closer to Jesus, whether they have walked with him for years or are just getting to know him.
- sharing biblical knowledge in a relatable way.
- bringing a little bit of Britishness to your event.
Cultivating Heart Conversation With God
Our hearts are important. Caring for our physical hearts is crucial, but more essential is attending to our spiritual hearts. How often have you said “I want to pray more often and more deeply but…”? We begin with enthusiasm but find it difficult to stay committed. Come and be guided on how to have meaningful heart conversation with God, while taking steps to a healthier life. You will learn the value of:
- Changing dressed up conversation into honest, down-to-earth talk.
- Turning wandering thoughts into purposeful prayer.
- Replacing negative reactions with God’s positive affirmations.
- Being bold and deepening your relationship with God.
Living In The Light
What is there not to love about holiday decorations, especially the lights? When the days are short and the nights are long, these twinkling lights make our world a brighter place. Yet, often we yearn for light to dispel the darkness inside us, not just on the outside. Christmas is a time to welcome the Light of the World, who promises to transform our night into day, and our darkness into light.
Developing A Healthy Habit Of Prayer
“I’m going to start exercising… soon.” “I want to pray more often and more deeply… but I get distracted.” Our resolutions to get in shape both physically and spiritually often fall short. We begin with enthusiasm but find it difficult to stay committed. This course, based on the book Prayer Zone Workout for the Heart, will guide you in transforming your heart through prayer, while you exercise your physical heart. If possible, participants practice personal prayer with easy walking, weather permitting. This workshop introduces a new and refreshing way to pray.
When Motherhood Doesn’t Turn Out The Way You Imagined
Being a mom turned out to be very different from my dreams. Perhaps your role as a mother is not how you imagined or planned it to be. Yet, in the middle of our shattered plans and day-to-day struggles, we can have a hope and a future.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM ME
- Prompt responses to emails or phone calls
- Honest and reliable communication
