The Revd Bramwell Bearcroft joins the team in Aquitaine

The Reverend Bramwell Bearcroft takes up the position of Assistant Chaplain of the Anglican Church of the Aquitaine, France from 1 November 2010. (A date for his formal licensing has not yet been set).

Bramwell and his wife Jennifer is already well known to the parish as he has had Permission to Officiate for a couple of years already. The Chaplain of the Aquitaine, the Revd Paul Vrolijk, is delighted that Bramwell was willing to be appointed to this position and looks forward to his full integration into the pastoral team. The parish of the Aquitaine covers a huge area of SW France with many worshipping centres. As Assistant Chaplain, Bramwell will give particular attention to developing the work in the region of Bordeaux. He has already helped to establish a new congregation in Doudrac which attracts about 50 to 70 worshippers on a regular basis!

Bramwell and Jennifer have two daughters, Naomi and Hannah, both in university. We formally welcome Bramwell into our diocesan clergy.

  1. Hi you two. Was playing around on face book and found you. Life looks as though it is exciting for you both. Mine has taken an odd turn in that I am now living in Panama city Florida, of all places. More, the "deep south" than Floridian. Lots of sand and sea and hot sticky weather.
    Hope all is well with you both. Love, Beverly Nield xx (Carrick)
