On 1st October we will welcome the next chaplain of St Alban’s, the Revd Dr Mark Barwick, who comes to us from All Saints’ Church in Waterloo, Belgium.
Fr Mark has been described by some as a tender of sacred fires, referring to his work as a teacher, spiritual guide and retreat leader. He also brings considerable experience in building ecumenical and interfaith relations.
He has worked for more than twenty years for non-governmental organisations in the promotion of justice, peace and human dignity, particularly in African countries. He has been policy adviser for several international organisations and a regular presenter at the European Parliament and other European institutions.
Originally from Washington, DC, Mark comes with his wife Corinna, from Essen, Germany, daughter Madeleine (age 6) and son Elias (age 3).
