New appointment for Revd Canon Jonathan Brewster, Treasurer, St Paul’s Cathedral

We are pleased to announce that the Reverend Canon Jonathan Brewster, Residentiary Canon and Treasurer at St Paul’s, has been appointed to a new role in the Diocese of Carlisle. In his new appointment as Interim Mission Community Leader and Transitional Vicar in  the Cartmel Peninsula Team Ministry, Jonathan will provide strategic leadership to enable the churches to work together in mission across the peninsula and to work with ecumenical colleagues in developing the vision.   He is expected to take up his new post in mid-October 2021.

Jonathan Brewster joined St Paul’s Cathedral as Canon Treasurer in 2017. The Canon Treasurer has oversight of the building and the commercial and financial aspects of its work, relating these to the Cathedral's spiritual mission of worship, prayer and service, as well as development, and marketing and communications. 

The Very Reverend David Ison, the Dean of St Paul’s says “Jonathan has supported St Paul’s Cathedral in many different ways during his time as Canon Treasurer. His thoughtful leadership and commitment has developed our work and helped us through the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are deeply grateful for all that he has given to us in these past few years and while we will greatly miss him and his family, we rejoice with him in his new role and the exciting opportunities it will bring.” 

Jonathan said “I have been immensely privileged to be part of St Paul’s Cathedral community since 2017 and to contribute to the valuable work of the Cathedral in my role as Canon Treasurer. While I will be very sad to say goodbye to my colleagues and friends here at the Cathedral, I am very much looking forward to joining the Diocese of Carlisle, and contributing to its ecumenical vision and the important work of the Cartmel Peninsular team working alongside colleagues helping the parishes develop and articulate their identity in a new and developing relationship with each other.” 

Prior to joining St Paul’s Cathedral in 2017, Jonathan was the Vicar of Christ Church with St John and St Saviour in Highbury for 14 years. Jonathan has also served as Area Dean of Islington since 2014 and was Acting Archdeacon of Hackney from 2015 to 2016. Ordained in 1994 after training at Trinity College, Bristol, he was a curate in Bradford, and between 1998 and 2003 served as Chaplain to the University of Westminster.
