Chief Executive made honorary Lay Canon
On Saturday 28 January BRF's Chief Executive, Richard Fisher, was made an honorary Lay Canon of Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford. Canons are selected because of their work within the Diocese of Oxford and the wider church.
Richard Fisher joined BRF in 1988, straight after reading Classics at Lady Margaret Hall, which is part of Oxford University. It was originally intended to be a one-year appointment as a gap year before going to theological college, but 28 years later he’s still here. He has led BRF since its relocation to Oxfordshire in 1991. He is married to Karen, who herself was a student at Christ Church, and they have a daughter Hannah and a son Will.
