Mark Collinson leads the School of Mission and works with the bishops in developing discipleship and deployment across the diocese. Prior to ordination he worked in international banking and management consultancy. After a curacy in suburban Manchester he spent nearly 14 years in the Netherlands developing a vision for new Anglican church plants. From 2015 to 2020 he was Canon Principal of the School of Mission and residentiary canon of Winchester Cathedral. He holds an MA in Theological and Religious Studies from Cambridge University, a research Masters degree in Anglican ecclesiology and in 2021 completed his doctorate in missional ecclesiology from the Free University in Amsterdam.
Angi has been part of the Diocese of Winchester since 2011. She served as parish clergy and was involved with vocations as a local vocations adviser and volunteer ADDO until 2018, when she joined the School of Mission as the IME2 Adviser and Assistant DDO, becoming DDO in 2020.
Prior to Ordination Angi taught in the primary sector, was a church youth worker and spent time as an at-home mum. Looking back she can see the thread of encouraging vocation of every kind running through her work and ministry. She believes God calls all of us to all sorts of service, and wants to see everyone find their place of calling in the church and beyond, vocation is not just about the people “at the front”.
When not working she is a voracious reader, espcially historical crime fiction, and enjoys all sorts of crafts and artistic activities. She is a keen rugby fan, supporting Harlequins and Scotland. Married to Tim, they have 4 children and a golden retriever. Angi loves cold water swimming, a passion not shared by any of the family, even the dog.
