Council Member for Cologne - Hilary was born in Leamington Spa in Warwickshire but his father was a naval chaplain, so they moved around a lot! Hilary came to Cologne in 1976 and has lived here ever since, although he has held positions in other cities during this time, he now lives in Köln-Mulheim. Hilary has been on the council previously for some time, and has enjoyed working with different Chaplains. He is also our back-up organist and regularly contributes in worship by reading lessons, leading intercessions and administering the chalice. Hilary enjoys working on the council because he feels a responsibility to the chaplaincy and to support the chaplain in his work. Having been brought up with a priest as his father and singing services six times a week as a chorister at King's College, Cambridge he has a lot of experience and a great love of the Anglican Liturgy. Hilary wants to make sure that our Chaplaincy continues to flourish and to provide support for all members of our congregation.
