It was a real honour to have known Philip, he was a truly gifted, very special humble person, with so many talents, which he used to help others. We greatly appreciated his Bible Studies and his Preaching. We have been privileged to sit near to Philip and Barbara, at CCF, at Sunday morning Services …

Philip was a humble Bible expositor who gave his life serving the Lord and helping to make disciples through his spoken word and his writings both in this country and overseas. It was a privilege to have him in my home for a church House Group meeting at one time and I am sure …

When I think of Philip I will always remember a gentle but strong character. He was clearly sharp and intelligent but yet so humble in spirit. He knew scripture well and was faithful in his gift to explain it and teach it’s principles for as long as he was physically able to. He was …

I have known Philip the whole of my Christian Life, and he, along with Barbara has encouraged my growth, and strengthened me when I felt like giving up.  Philip was kind, gentle, understanding and truly knew the mind of Christ.  I shall miss him so much, and who will I play scrabble with now.  …

Philip had a real indepth knowledge of the scriptures and could use that to paint vivid pictures of characters and events in the scriptures. I particularly remember one talk he gave about the Tabernacle when he explained the significance of the separate areas and how they could represent our Christian life. He made it …

Philip was a person of great wisdom and knowledge, I always looked forward to him giving a sermon and was blessed every time. I was privileged to be asked, by Philip, to provide some illustrations for a book he was writing. He was a great scholar, and produced a play called, Water, Wind and Fire. …

What can we say about Philip Collier that will truely express our gratitude to such an amazing man of God.  Philip had such exceptional knowledge of the Word of God and imparted this to us all. We remember the ‘Grow and Go’ teaching course which Philip delivered many years ago and was so valuable.  …

The picture shows Phillip at Church having just handed in his Christmas shoebox to be sent to some poor child overseas. I saw Phillip as a man of great wisdom. It was because of this that I went to him one day with a problem that worried me. I told him I had never …

Sheila Thomlinson

I saw Phillip Collier as a real man of God. But that went with a sense of humour, too. These qualities came out when he once  preached a sermon from Jeremiah 18 on the potter and the marred clay. At one point when he was emphasising the damaged vessel being worked on by the …

When we think of Philip, we remember his insightful teaching and the way he was able to elucidate the Bible in a clear and powerful way. We also remember lots of Fellowship walks with both him and Barbara. Most of all we remember him as a faithful and honest man of God, whose consistency …

Greatly enjoyed our theological discussions with Philip. He had a sharp & penetrating mind, laced with a sense of humour. But there was another side to Philip –  he & Barbara always lived the message. Fondest memories of a life well lived, now promoted to glory.  With every blessing Andrew & Alena …
