Peter Lynas

Peter Lynas became Evangelical Alliance’s UK Director in December 2019 following eight years as its Northern Ireland Director.

Originally trained as a lawyer, Peter worked as a barrister in Belfast for five years, before studying theology at Regent College in Vancouver where he remains a board member. He has previously worked for the Relationships Foundation pursuing a biblically inspired vision for a better society and taught on faith at work and ethics at Belfast Bible College. Peter has also worked as executive pastor for his church, Causeway Coast Vineyard, and with the Lynas Foodservice business.

During his time as Northern Ireland Director, Peter has become a significant media commentator in Northern Ireland, bringing insight on legal, cultural and political issues. Peter was a leading commentator throughout the Ashers bakery court case, and he is a familiar figure at the Northern Ireland Assembly at Stormont.

In his current role, Peter continues to speak on behalf of the Evangelical Alliance and passionately advocate for the place and value of faith in public life.
