Nigel Rawlinson

University Chaplain - Anglican

Nigel is the University Chaplain. He qualified in Medicine from Cambridge (Emmanuel College and Addenbrooke’s Hospital) in 1980. After surgical training, and while working in A&E in Bristol, he trained in WEMTC to be ordained into self-supporting ministry in 1999. He continued working as priest and “ordained doctor” in A&E (as consultant), at Dorothy House Hospice (as specialty doctor), and as Associate Minister, at All Saints Weston, Bath.  From 2011-2016 he was Director of Student Affairs at the Medical School in Bristol. He is committed to Renewal in UK, the "foundation stones" of which, he thinks, are Unity, compassion and the power of the Holy Spirit.  
In September 2016 he moved from self-supporting to stipendiary ministry, working in the same location – outside church. He began as University Chaplain and team leader in the University of Bath. 
He is married to Pat and they have 2 grown up daughter, one son-in-law and one grandchild.
