Peter is currently the Archdeacon of Lindisfarne in the Diocese of Newcastle, a position he has held since 2008, where he is chair of the Newcastle Diocesan Board of Education and leads community engagement in Northumberland and rural delivery of the Diocesan vision.

He worked in the oil industry before being ordained in 1995; having trained for ministry at Cranmer Hall in Durham and served his curacy in North Shields.

Following his curacy, he became priest in charge at St. Martin’s, Byker – where he was highly successful in bringing together a challenging inner-city community, designing a new church building and attracting a visit from the home secretary to showcase the community’s achievement. He has also been director of the Urban Ministry and Theology project in Newcastle before his current role.

Peter joins Derby Cathedral at a time when its place at the heart of the community, responding to the present crisis, is more important than ever.

The Cathedral has developed new ways to reach and engage with people and is looking forward to continuing that and to being able to reopen as a gathering place and a focus of meaning for the people of Derby and Derbyshire.

Peter is married to Sarah, and they look forward to making the family home in Derby as soon as possible.
