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 80 names separate the first Chaplain, Zachary Craddock, from our last Chaplain, Nigel Stimpson. 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).Despite St George's enjoying a far longer history, St Paul's has had almost as many Chaplains, which is the result of a shorter average time in office.
*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.
