Vicar – Chris Collins

Chris Collins – vicar of St Christopher’s Church

Chris is vicar of St.Christopher’s and has been with us since early 2017.

He is from the Wirral on Merseyside and is married to Sarah, and they have two children – Josh & Faith. Before entering ordained ministry he worked in Housing, then in Local Authority Research and Statistics, and then as a Church Youth Worker.

He enjoys football & rugby, though mostly via a TV screen these days! He also enjoys good scotch, history books & spicy food.

He is passionate about opportunities to get to know people and share the good news of Jesus with them!
