Acting Senior Minister – Geoff Collison

Geoff Collison

Geoff and his wife Margaret are regular members of St Hildas, having recently retired from full time ministry. Geoff has graciously taken up the role of leading us as we await the arrival of a new Senior Minister in November. Our ministries continue normally (or as normally as they can with a Covid lockdown) but we are enthusiastic about having a new pastor as we believe that God has led us to him and him to us. We hope that you will join with all of us as we welcome him in November.
