The Bishop of Brisbane (Northern Region), the Right Revd Jeremy Greaves, is to be the new Archbishop of Brisbane and Metropolitan of the Province of Queensland.
The Bishop Administrator and Bishop of the Western Region, Cam Venables, said: “Archbishop-elect Jeremy Greaves will be the 10th Archbishop of Brisbane following the 2 February 2023 formal resignation of Archbishop Emeritus Phillip Aspinall AC, who faithfully led our Diocesan community for 21 years.”
Bishop Jeremy will be installed at Saint John’s Cathedral in Brisbane on Saturday 16 December 2023 at 10.30 am AEST (0.30 am GMT). In addition to his episcopal role, Bishop Jeremy is Chair of the Anglican Schools Commission. He was born in London, England, in 1969, obtained his Bachelor of Theology from Flinders University in 1997 and ordained a priest in 1998 in the Diocese of Adelaide.
He is the grandson of Sussex-born Walter Baddeley (1894-1960), who served as Bishop of Melanesia and Bishop of Blackburn, and who was awarded the Distinguished Service Order and the Military Cross for his service in the first World War.
