Jo Swinney

Director of Communications

Jo Swinney joins A Rocha International with communications experience ranging from being Director of Communications for CPO (Christian Publishing and Outreach), editor of Preach Magazine and the author of six books. Jo has a BA from Birmingham University in English Literature and African Studies and an MA from Regent College, Vancouver in Theology. Jo is the eldest daughter of Peter and Miranda Harris, A Rocha’s founders, and she was raised in Portugal in the first A Rocha centre. She is delighted to be rejoining the A Rocha family. 

Jo writes: “I love A Rocha’s message of hope in the face of bleak statistics and sensationalist headlines. I love that so many places have been physically transformed by the outworking of this hope – faithful, ongoing and practical care of creation in God’s name and for his glory. I love that A Rocha doesn’t pit planet against people but works for the benefit of all, and I love the emphasis on community. My role is anything that has to do with communication, print, digital, social, internal and external.  Having grown up in A Rocha Portugal, this role feels a bit like coming home, although with the loss of my mum it is a different home.” Jo lives in Bath, where her husband Shawn is a vicar, and they have two daughters, Alexa and Charis.
