We are the Northern Irish office of the Evangelical Alliance, the oldest and largest evangelical unity movement in the UK.

The Evangelical Alliance seeks to serve and strengthen the work of the church as together we make Jesus known through its confident and effective mission and voice.

We believe the gospel is Public Truth and believe the church has a vital role to play in the Public Square.

We are here to create connections and inspire conversations as together we reimagine faith for this rapidly changing culture.




Peter Lynas

Peter leads the team at Evangelical Alliance in Northern Ireland. He is a former barrister who then completed his M Div at Regent College in Vancouver where he serves as a board member. Peter is part of the leadership at Causeway Coast Vineyard and is a regular speaker and media commentator. He is passionate about the role of faith in the public square. 

David Smyth

David is our lead on public policy. He is a former solicitor and represents the Evangelical Alliance on a range of government, civic and charitable forums. He serves in the space where faith, law, politics and culture intersect.


Donna Jennings

As church and mission coordinator Donna seeks to resource the church to be strategic, creative and bold as we proclaim and embody the good news of Jesus in our context.
Donna's vision for church and mission has been formed by her MTh in Missiology, her cross cultural mission experience. Some of life’s good gifts for Donna include a morning coffee, shared laughter with friends, a long run out in nature and a good crime drama!

Dawn McAvoy

Dawn keeps the office and team in order. She also heads up Both Lives Matter, of which EANI is a founding partner. Dawn serves on the board of New Horizon and the operations team of Ards and North Down Street Pastors. Dawn is also a deacon in Kircubbin Community Church and lives on the Ards peninsula, with her husband Peter and their three daughters.
