Diocesan Secretary- George Colville
I was born and grew up in Liverpool and studied at Liverpool Bluecoat School before reading Mathematics at Brasenose College Oxford. After graduating I trained and qualified as a Chartered Accountant in Liverpool. I then worked for the Charity Commission as a Senior Accountant where my main role was providing accounting support, advice and training to the Charity Commission staff and Charity trustees. I met my wife Andrea at Oxford. She worked as a Computer Analyst before taking on the job of looking after our two children. We worship at St Ann's Church Warrington, where I play the keyboard and am currently Churchwarden after previously having been treasurer for many years. Andrea runs the Guides. My interests include visiting historic monuments particularly castles, music and swimming. I am keen to hear from everyone involved in the Church's mission, and to ensure that the very best support is available to parishes, clergy and to others who follow Christ's call in our diocese.
