The Chaplain plays a key role in the life of our churches. Therefore in this section we list the names and dates of all the Chaplains who have served the two churches in recognition of their service to the Anglican community in greater Lisbon.
The Names and Dates
A total of 82 names separate the first Chaplain, Zachary Craddock, from our current Chaplain, Beth Bendrey. The longest serving Chaplain was Thomas Godfrey Pope, of St George's (35 years), beating John Humphreys, of St Paul's into second place (27 years).
*Jonathan Swift was appointed Chaplain in 1702 but never came to Lisbon.** In July 1984 the two churches of St Paul's, Estoril and St George's, Lisbon were combined into the Greater Lisbon Chaplaincy; Victor Ravensdale stayed on as Assistant Chaplain until June 1985.
