Robin Blount
Cruise Chaplaincy
Coming from: Ashford,  Kent  UK
The Revd. Robin Blount is an Anglican priest, ordained in 1968 and retired since 2003. For most of his ministry he was an Industrial Chaplain, working in the Black Country and latterly in Folkestone with Eurotunnel UK. This was always an ecumenical role, so he is well used to the varieties of styles found in the various Christian denominations. Since 2003 he has undertaken chaplaincy on 18 cruises including several 3-month cruises. He has developed a series of worship services drawn partly from the United Church of Canada and partly from other sources providing a refreshing change to weekly forms of worship.

Roger, who is a Freeman of the City of London, has many varied media interests. As Roger has met and interviewed an extraordinary array of remarkable people, these encounters have become the basis of his witty and entertaining talks.
