Safeguarding Officer - Christ Church North Shields

My name is Glyn Evans and I was born in Dartford Kent.  As you can tell from my name I have some Welsh roots!  I trained as a vicar in Birmingham then moved to the North East thirty years ago.  Before I came to North Shields I was the vicar of St. Andrews in Newcastle and the City Centre Chaplain. I am a Chaplain to Deaf people.  I am married and have two grown up children.

My name is Dorothy Robinson, I was born in north Northumberland, moving to Tyneside in the 1970’s.  I trained for ordination at Cranmer Hall, St John’s College, Durham.  For the past ten years I have been Associate Priest at Tynemouth Priory, Church of the Holy Saviour.  I also work as a Hospital Chaplain a few hours a week with Northumbria NHS Chaplaincy Team.  I am married and have two grown up children.

My name is Peter Knibbs I was brought up in the West Midlands and studied dentistry at Birmingham University. I trained for ordination whilst still working in my secular role in Cornwall.  I am married with three grown up children and six grandchildren.  Before moving to North Shields Parish, I ministered at St Mary Monkseaton and St Cuthbert Blyth.  Like Glyn I am a keen follower of Newcastle United.
