Fr Robin is the Vicar at St John’s having arrived in May 2012. He was born in Staffordshire into a Clergy family, and has, therefore lived around the country.
He read Theology at St Chad’s College Durham, before doing an MA in Systematic Theology at King’s College London.
He trained for the Priesthood at St Stephen’s House Oxford where he gained an MTh in Applied Theology. He served his title at Christ the Saviour, Ealing Broadway, under Prebendary Andrew Davis, before becoming Vicar of St Luke’s Uxbridge Road in 2008. He came to St John’s in 2012.
Fr Robin is married to Marina Jones, the Deputy Director of Development at the English National Opera, and they have two children. Fr Robin is a qualified cricket umpire, although time limits the games he can stand in. He is also interested in reading about and watching American and British politics, Opera, and theatre.
He was aware of St John’s from his growing up, having heard of Fr Heal’s work, and the parishes reputation. He was therefore delighted to take up the living when the Guild of All Soul’s offered it to him.
