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 use God’s Word to lead women of all ages into a deep relationship with their heavenly Father who loves them.
Here’s an overview of this page. I hope it will help you start a conversation with me about speaking at your event:

Senior Pastor, Emmanuel A.C. Church, Rochester NH
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.
Rev. Dr. Cynthia Fantasia
Pastor of Women (retired), 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

In 2011 I graduated, cum laude, from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary with a Masters in Religion.
I have spoken in a wide variety of settings: women’s retreats, church events, and conferences, as well as participated on speaking teams.
My ministry is managed through my 501(c)(3) non-profit organization:
Praying Naturally – my website – focuses on helping women become comfortable and confident in their conversation with God. I offer practical ways to practice prayer through my prayer resources library.
reNEW – I co-director a retreat for Christian writers and speakers in New England.

I am married to Colin, also a Brit, and we have three young adult children spread across too many time zones. When not at home in New York City, you can find me enjoying the mountains of Colorado. I love to travel and cannot live without a mug of English tea!

MY TALKS FOCUS ON:
- 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.
For conferences or retreats:
DEVELOPING A HEALTHY HABIT OF PRAYER – 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.
NEW!! SERENITY & STRENGTH RETREAT – a weekend designed for you and your women to better understand God’s heart and embrace His love, peace, and strength in your own life. The weekend includes teaching, interactive journaling, prayer, personal quiet times, recreation, and worship with the hope you leave renewed and restored – empowered with soul strength for all the days ahead.
For a workshop:
CULTIVATING HEART CONVERSATION WITH GOD – 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. Through this workshop, discover the joy of meaningful one-on-one conversation with your heavenly Father — what you should say, how you should act, and the power of personal prayer.
The value I hope to bring to a show is to help listeners take the stress out of praying. I know from my audience that prayer can be a struggle. I love nothing more than taking the difficulty we have with prayer and making it simple and practical for our everyday lives. And I have a ton of free prayer resources to offer.
HOW TO PRAY WHEN WE CAN’T FIND THE RIGHT WORDS TO SAY – and how to deal with those pesky wandering thoughts when we pray.

For moms groups:
WHEN MOTHERHOOD IS NOT HOW YOU IMAGINED – My story as a mom turned out to be very different from my dreams. Often motherhood is not how we imagined or planned it to be. Yet, in the middle of our shattered plans and day-to-day struggles, we can find hope and a future.
For Christmas events:
THE LIVING 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 not just on the outside but inside us. Christmas is a time to welcome the Light of the World, who promises to transform our night into day, and our darkness into light.
