Her intercultural experience includes 7 years in Russia as a mission partner, ministering to multi-cultural congregations in London, and immersion experiences in India, Thailand, Israel-Palestine, Ghana, Zimbabwe and the Caribbean.

Succeeding the Revd Bill Mullally, Nicola will direct the flagship programmes of the college in reflective pastoral supervision and be responsible for our training teams and consultant relationships in this field. She will take up the role on 1st May 2024.

The Principal of Wesley House, the Revd Dr Jane Leach said of the appointment:

“We are delighted that Nicola will be joining our team. She is an experienced pastoral supervisor and trainer and brings a broad range of experience of ecumenical and intercultural ministry and leadership to the role.  We look forward to welcoming her creative energy and spiritual insight into the work of supervision and into the wider work of the college.”


Speaking about her appointment to this role, Nicola says:

“I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to help shape and develop the highly-regarded ecumenical and global work of Wesley House. Pastoral Supervision has been life-giving for me – bringing joy, creativity and courage into my ministry. In addition to the existing Certificate and Diploma courses, I hope to offer a new programme for continuous development. This will provide ongoing support for reflective practitioners as they hold together both their own well-being and the well-being of the organisations they work for.”

Since 2003 Wesley House has been investing in the development of reflective pastoral supervision as a professional practice through offering training courses and consultancy to organisations wanting to implement it for their staff.  Over the last 10 years we have directly trained or supported the training of more than a thousand people. We currently work with three denominations and one hospital trust in the UK and offer our own Certificate, Diploma and Group Supervision Diploma courses in the UK, and in the USA.
