Bishop Jeremy Greaves

Congratulations to Rev Jeremy Greaves, Rector, St Marks, Buderim, who will become Bishop of the Nor07d23821thern 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.

    Congratulations to Bishop Jeremy elect. Great to see more progressive parish leaders given more prominence in the Anglican community in Qld – Jeremy will be an outstanding leader.

    Great news! Jeremy Greaves as Bishop of the Northern region is a blessing and gift to people both inside and outside the church. His style of ministry and leadership which I perceive as being along the lines encapsulated in the book “An Everyone Culture” by Andy Fleming et. al. with insight and encouragement into the corporate spiritual & pastoral “Edge, Home, Groove” approach to lay & ordained structure is forward thinking, and creative imagination at it’s best.

    Spiritual leaders must walk along a thoroughly difficult path in this post truth twenty first century.
    Jeremy Greaves does this with deep thought, reflection, love and dedication. He provides great support to the churched and unchurched alike and sincerely serves the wonderful melting pot of church community today.
    Our new Bishop is just the man for this journey with his great capacity to respect all understandings and provide additional interpretations with loving kindness.
