The Venerable Matthew Jones to Hamburg

The Venerable Matthew Jones will be licensed as Chaplain of the Anglican Church of St Thomas a Becket, Hamburg, Germany on 16 September 2011. Fr Matthew comes to this diocese from the Anglican Church of Australia where he most recently served as Rector of St Paul’s, Ipswich and Archdeacon of Cunningham in the Diocese of Brisbane. 

The Churchwardens and Council of St Thomas Becket Anglican Church have issued an open invitation to the eucharist at which Fr Matthew will be licensed by the Archdeacon of Germany and Northern Europe, the Venerable Jonathan LLoyd. The service will be in St Thomas a Becket Church, Zeughausmarkt 22, Hamburg, at 19.00 h. (Clergy of all churches are invited to robe and process).

St Thomas a Becket is among the oldest congregations of the diocese, and will celebrate its 400th anniversary  next year. The website of the parish is, in my view, a model website among those in this diocese. It can be found here.

We welcome Fr Matthew to this diocese in Europe!
