Pastor Roy Barton

Director of Outreach

Roy, together with his wife Carol, has been with the Alliance for well over forty years. For most of this time, they’ve been members of Woden Valley Alliance Church. Roy served as an Elder at Woden for many years as well as leading worship, children’s church and outreach ministries. In terms of outreach at Woden, Roy led the “Evangelism Explosion” ministry and also led a team that worked on “Making a Difference” in the community. He has served on various Alliance Boards and committees, including the Alliance College of Theology Board. Currently, he is a Board member of Christian Faith and Freedom which alerts Governments and the Church to the plight of persecuted Christians around the world. 

Roy is primarily responsible for encouraging a “culture” of outreach across the Alliance, in which we are all “On mission” – Everyone, Everywhere, All the time. In pursuing this task, Roy works with Alliance people from around the country as well as producing videos to be shown in Alliance churches and conducting seminars via Zoom. In his Director of Outreach role, Roy draws upon his extensive experience of both church leadership and the organisational culture of government and industry.
