Welcome to Wilma Colley


Welcome to Wilma Colley

Wilma Colley will be joining us in the Woodfield Team at the end of this month. She will be joining us as a curate – in other words, she’ll be learning the work of an ordained minister. So we’ll have 2 curates at the same time – Joanne Dyer and Wilma – and will be much blessed by this. Wilma will continue to live in Groby and commute in to be with us.Wilma’s ordination will take place in Leicester Cathedral on Sunday 30th June at 10.30am. At the time of writing, we don’t know how many tickets there will be available for the service so not sure if there wil be a coach this time or not.

Wilma writes: “Hello, my name is Wilma and I would like to introduce myself. For the past three years I have been studying theology part time at the Queens Foundation Theological College in Birmingham. On June 30th I will be ordained deacon  and then I will be joining the Woodfield benefice as an assistant curate. I will be what is called a self-supporting minister and I will be working part time.

I currently live in Groby with my husband Noel who is also a vicar. Between us we have ten grown up children and five grand children (so far!), so that keeps us busy. I was a GP for many years until taking early retirement when I started on my journey towards ordination. My hobbies include going for walks, visiting the theatre, travelling, when possible, and reading.

I am really excited as I embark on the next stage of my journey. I have a passion for rural ministry, and I am looking forward to being a part of the work that God is doing, through you, in your churches and in your communities, and to meeting everyone, hearing your stories, and getting to know you.”
