The Right Reverend John Brown

We are saddened to announce the death of Bishop John, who served our diocese and province as bishop in Cyprus and the Gulf from 1987-1995.

Bishop John will be remembered fondly by all who knew him for his ready smile and friendly manner. He and Rosemary traveled extensively in the diocese, providing a strong personal link with the chaplaincies and between the chaplaincies. It was during Bishop John’s time that our Diocesan Constitution came into its present form, uniting the two archdeaconries into a coherent diocesan identity and administration after the formative years when our diocese held annual synods separately in Cyprus and in the Gulf. read on
