Chris Newlands
Chris Newlands

Chris lives in Lancashire, even though was born on the other side of the Pennines, but at an early age his love of drama and the stage led him away to Bristol to tread the boards, before his wanderlust took him to Algeria, where he remained for two years, travelling the length and breadth of the country on the back of a camel, when he wasn't teaching English and encouraging an interest in theatre, music and the arts on behalf of the British Council.

He returned to England to study Theology at Cambridge, before being ordained as an Anglican priest. Since ordination he worked as a Curate in Hampshire and as Precentor of Durham Cathedral before his itchy feet took him away from England once more to work in Eastern Europe. This was shortly after the fall of communism in those countries to work as Chaplain to the English speaking communities there, and as the Anglican envoy to the Orthodox Churches in Romania and Bulgaria. He is an authority on Orthodox iconography. On returning to England he worked as a parish priest in Colchester, and as Bishop's Chaplain before moving to Lancaster, where he is Vicar of Lancaster, based in Lancaster Priory, one of England's Greater Churches

This historic church contains the Regimental Chapel of the King's Own Royal Regiment (now part of the Duke of Lancaster's Regiment), and he has developed a close association with the life of the Regiment. He still loves travel, music, theatre, opera, cinema, good food (and drink) but above all loves life!

Guest speakers and other staff (whether or not advertised in our brochures) are usually booked many months in advance of the holiday and sometimes they become unavailable, even at very short notice. If this happens, we will always do our best to make suitable alternative arrangements but any such change shall not be regarded as a major change and we cannot be held liable or responsible in these circumstances.
