Welcome Reverend Richard Frost

We are very pleased to welcome Reverend Richard Frost, who is coming to minister to our Bordeaux church from mid-June to end of July.

Richard has been married to Jill for 45 years, has 3 children and 5 grandchildren and lives in Bideford, North Devon.

After spending time as a Merchant Navy officer cadet, he spent 30 years as a serving police officer before being ordained in 1997. Since his retirement from full time ministry in 2009, he has served as Chaplain in Cyprus and locum Chaplain in Italy, Spain and Belgium. He has also undertaken Chaplaincy duties on numerous cruise liners travelling world wide ministering to passengers and crew.

Besides his interest in travel, Richard enjoys good food and wine, outdoor activities such as walking in the countryside and along the coastline, jogging and the occasional game of tennis ( Back permitting!).

Richard has a simple philosophy on life and ministry -‘Actions speak louder than words’, and ‘Treat others the way you would expect to be treated’. When the going gets tough as surely it can especially in church life, strive to – ‘Pastor with generosity and keep a sweet Spirit’ . –‘Love God above everything else and all will fall into place. And – ’Pray everyday for the Holy Spirit to fill your hearts and lives’.

On a lighter note -if you want to make God laugh,- ‘Show him your plans’!
