Rev. Debbie Collins – Master

Debbie arrived as our Master in 2023 after a 30-year career in the NHS as a nurse and then as a midwife overlapping in later years with training at The Queen’s Foundation theological college in Birmingham. Ordained as a priest in 2012, ministry took her from the rural outskirts of Birmingham to the inner city and into outer estates, giving her wide and vibrant opportunities for engaging in multicultural life. She is also the clergy ambassador for the charity ‘Embrace the Middle East’.

Debbie enjoys travel and snorkeling and playing with multimedia textile art. She doesn’t like to waste anything and scrutinises everything heading for the bin to see if it can be re-used, recycled, or repurposed! She is wife to Peter, mother to Flora and Daisy and nanny to the gorgeous Arlo.
