Revd Mark Chester, Senior Chaplain

I am a Church of England priest and was commissioned Senior Chaplain, Waterways in March 2015 by Bishop Alan, Bishop of St Albans. Before this appointment I led churches in Surrey, Birmingham and Plymouth while at the same time, in partnership with local councils, established resources like debt counseling and ‘Street Angels’.

Prior to the priesthood I was a regular army officer in the Royal Yeomanry but now I am also a part time Chaplain at the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst.

In my spare time I enjoy swimming, working out at the gym and horse riding – with more enthusiasm than skill!
