Bishop’s Advisor for European Affairs
Revd Canon Dr Jack McDonald
Jack serves a chaplain-president of the Anglican Central Committee in Belgium, a Napoleonic post which acts as the interface between the Belgian State and the Church of England and The Episcopal Church. He is also Canon theologian at Holy Trinity, Brussels. And he holds the chair in history at the Protestant Faculty in Brussels and lectures too in Leuven.
Jack is passionate that the church’s voice is heard on a range of issues such as migration and tackling poverty.
He regularly meets with the Conference of European Churches, which is based across the road from the European Commission and also with COMECE, the Roman Catholic bishops in Europe. Jack also writes briefings and conduct academic research which helps Bishop Robert (and via him other Church of England and Anglican Communion bishops) represent the Archbishop to the EU and Council of Europe.
