We are delighted to announce the appointment of the Revd Canon Dr Leslie Nathaniel to be the new Chaplain of St Thomas Becket Church. He is expected to arrive in Hamburg in mid-September.
Father Leslie is currently the Archbishop of Canterbury’s International Ecumenical Secretary and European Secretary of the Council for Christian Unity. Born and brought up in South India, he has previously lived and worked in Germany, and is married to a German priest. Father’s Leslie’s own experience of crossing cultural boundaries will resonate with many of us.
A fluent German speaker, Father Leslie is also a keen church musician and a cricket enthusiast. A press release containing further details can be downloaded here as a PDF: English (291 KB), German (293 KB)
