Meet Alina Rai

I am a Baptist Minister serving at Anderson Baptist Church, a multicultural bilingual church in Reading. 

I trained at Regents Park College in Oxford and have been ordained since 2017. I am originally from Nepal but Reading has been my home for the last 16 years. And I absolutely love this place. 

I am passionate about life and have great passion for God and people. I value my faith, fellowship and being in a learning and serving community where every person can thrive regardless of what background, faith, culture and age group they come from. 

I enjoy any form of art and creativity, including poetry and designing. I also love to explore spirituality and engage in spiritual and philosophical conversations. It would be my pleasure to meet you and support you. I will be at the Chaplaincy Centre serving soup lunch on Mondays.
