Who's Who





Team Rector




Fr. Nick Debney, Team Vicar

My name is Fr Nick Debney and I am a Team Vicar in the Newton Abbot Benefice with the particular responsibility of being the Vicar of St Luke’s Milber.  Prior to ordination in 2013 I worked for over 20 years in the NHS as a senior manager.  I served my curacy in Dartmouth and Dittisham and moved here in March 2017.  My passion is to make known the joy and wonder of the Christian faith to all ages – but in particular children, young people and families.

I am married to Sally and we have a lovely Son; my hobbies include playing the guitar, mandolin and bouzouki, cooking and socialising walking our dog Lucy to try and wear her out!

It is a great joy to be working as part of the clergy team here in Newton Abbot and I thank God for the exciting and wonderful possibilities and opportunities which lie ahead.

Day off Monday



Rev'd Gareth Regan, Team Vicar

Hi, my name is Gareth and I am one of the team vicars. I was licensed to the benefice in June 2017.

The main focus of my ministry is centred around new housing areas, specifically Houghton Barton and Rew farm. I am really excited to see what God is going to do in these new and growing communities, alongside doing the other half my job which is being a priest in Newton Abbot working in the five churches make up our benefice.

I am married with three children, and in my spare time, I enjoy cycling and building computers.
