Andrew Braddock (OS 1989) has been installed as an honorary canon of Gloucester Cathedral in recognition of his ministry as diocesan missioner, a post he has held since 2006.
Prior to that, Andrew was rector of Cringleford, Norfolk, and rural dean in the diocese of Norwich.
Speaking to the diocese of Gloucester website about his appointment, Andrew said:
I am honoured and delighted to be invited by Bishop Michael to become an honorary canon of Gloucester Cathedral. I see it, not simply as a personal appointment, but as an affirmation for the importance of mission and developing fresh expressions of church in the life of the diocese. The local church remains at the cutting edge of mission and so as well as being diocesan missioner, I continue to rejoice in my ministry at St Catharine’s, Gloucester and my current role as interim priest of St Aldate’s, Gloucester. Working with so many creative and committed people across the life of our diocese continues to inspire and encourage me.
Andrew is married to Victoria and they have two children, Benedict and Beatrice.
