BRF’s core Anna Chaplaincy team expands
Updated: Feb 9
We’re delighted to welcome a new member of staff to our team, Debbie Ducille, who joins us to take on the church lead role. This enables Julia Burton-Jones to move to become our training and development lead.
Debbie Ducille joins the Anna Chaplaincy team with a range of experience that includes roles in education, the voluntary sector and church ministry. She is passionate about vibrant relational life in the church, stemming from her own desire to network and connect with people and groups. She is also committed to pioneering reflective and strategic ways to think, live and act together.
Debbie and her family have lived in Birmingham for most of the last 20 years, a city she loves for its diverse and welcoming character. As well as her working roles, Debbie has long been engaged in theological studies, currently in doctoral research exploring elements of Anglican ecclesiology. In her spare time, she loves ‘to make things, cook food from around the world and try to garden.’
Debbie writes, ‘I am so pleased to join the wonderful Anna Chaplaincy team and thankful that I get to be a part of what God is doing through them. Sometimes you encounter a ministry that is bursting with life, potential and the transforming power of the Spirit: you just want to join in! Anna Chaplaincy feels like such a ministry. I’m really looking forward to meeting both with existing Anna Chaplaincy network members and other partners in this work, and enabling new relationships around the country.’
