Chaplain to deliver Sunday Service on BBC Radio Wales
October 22, 2021

Rev’d Dr Rob Beamish, the Chaplain of Rydal Penrhos, will be delivering the Sunday Service for BBC Radio Wales this weekend.

Our new Chaplain, the Reverend Dr Rob Beamish, has settled in extremely well at Rydal Penrhos since the start of the academic year. The respected figure was chosen as the man to replace Rev’d Nick Sissons, who departed the school after an incredible 12 years to become Superintendent Minister for the Bangor and Holyhead circuit and join the chaplaincy team at Bangor University.

Rev’d Dr Beamish has wasted no time in making an impact, both during events such as the Harvest Service and playing a leading role in Rydal Penrhos’ annual Food Drive which brought a significant response from the entire school community.

In addition to his work at the school, Rev’d Dr Beamish also contributes to the BBC Radio Wales religion department from time to time and he will be delivering weekly Sunday Service this weekend.

Rev’d Dr Beamish was educated at St John’s College Southsea before being awarded an MA in Theology and Philosophy at the University of Oxford. He has a PhD in Theology from King’s College London and is also a qualified teacher.

He is currently sharing his responsibilities at Rydal Penrhos and serving as the Minister at Prince’s Drive Baptist Church in Colwyn Bay. Rev’d Dr Beamish has been an Accredited Minister for nearly 20 years and is a keen participant in outdoor pursuits, especially within mountain leadership and skiing.

We are very fortunate to have a Chaplain of Rev’d Dr Beamish’s calibre to carry on the fantastic work done by Rev’d Sissons. This service is one not to miss and we cannot wait to hear it.
