Congratulations to Rev Jeremy Greaves, Rector, St Marks, Buderim, who will become Bishop of the Northern Region of the Anglican Diocese of Brisbane from mid February 2017.
The consecration ceremony will be held at St Johns Cathedral, Brisbane at 7pm on Friday 24th February.
Jeremy led our team over three years of planning for the very successful Common Dreams Conference in Brisbane this year. His guiding hand kept a large team with diverse backgrounds and skills working in unity for this long period.
Jeremy brings extensive and varied experiences to his new role:
He has been Parish Priest at Buderim since May 2013. Currently he is also Archdeacon for the area.
Before coming to Buderim, Fr. Jeremy was Dean of Christ Church Cathedral in Darwin where he presided over the rebuilding of the cathedral badly damaged by cyclone. He has worked in parishes in Adelaide and remote South Australia as well as Katherine in the Northern Territory.
He has passion for ministry with people, often thought of as being on the margins. He will also maintain a strong interest in the developing Progressive Christianity movement.
Fr. Jeremy is married to Josie and together they have three children.
His administrative region covers all parishes on the northern side of the Brisbane River to Bundaberg and he hopes to reside on the Sunshine Coast where the Greaves children attend schools.
