A new Bishop of Southampton

Debbie Sellin is to become the first woman to be the Bishop of Southampton, and the first woman to be a Bishop in the Diocese of Winchester. She takes over from Bishop Jonathan Frost, who recently moved to York.

Debbie is currently the Vicar of St John the Baptist, Wonersh with Blackheath in the Diocese of Guildford and is also the Area Dean for the Deanery of Cranleigh. She was ordained 12 years ago after spending time working as a Family and Children’s Worker in a Church of England parish in Guildford, and as a Manager in the NHS.

Debbie will take up her post in July, after being consecrated as Bishop.
