CGGS welcomes new Chaplain

Posted 3 September 2021 3:26pm

Canberra Girls Grammar School (CGGS) warmly welcomes Father Christopher Lewis as the School’s new Chaplain. He will join CGGS at the start of Term 4, as soon as he completes his quarantine in the ACT.

Father Chris, as he likes to be called, arrives at CGGS after a rewarding career in the Royal Australian Navy, where he served in a variety of ships and establishments. 

A graduate of St Mark’s National Theological Centre, the Anglican Diocese of Canberra and Goulburn is Father Chris’ “home” diocese, where he was formed in the Anglo-Catholic tradition and was ordained in 2016.

Father Chris is married to Rebecca and they have four children, Georgina (10), Benjamin (8), Annalise (6), and Beatrice (4). He loves spending time with his family, and enjoys reading and meditation. A Canberran at heart, he and his family are avid supporters of the Canberra Raiders.

Father Chris’ life was changed by the Gospel and he seeks to journey with others as they each run their own race of faith. Theologically generous, Father Chris seeks to grow the Kingdom of God through peace, love, hope, joy, inclusion, and forgiveness. 

We hope you join us in making him and his family feel very welcome in our CGGS community.
