Revd John Knowles

Role: Warden Member CRC Executive
I was selected for Reader Training in the Diocese of London when I was in my late twenties. By the time I had completed training, I had moved and so was admitted and first licensed in St Albans, subsequently serving in parishes in the Blackburn and Birmingham dioceses.

I spent 35 years working in schools, teaching physics and culminating in 17 years as a Head, firstly of a state grammar school in Birmingham and then of an independent school in Glasgow. I was Chief Examiner for an A level physics syllabus and for a while Chairman of the Association of Heads of Grant Maintained Schools.

Whilst a Head in Birmingham, I trained part-time for ordination and was a ‘Self Supporting Minister’ for 7 years, the last period within the Scottish Episcopal Church. I took early retirement at the end of 2004 and since then have been Warden of Readers for the Chester Diocese and until two years ago also Vicar of a parish at the southern edge of the Manchester conurbation.

My wife and I have three adult daughters and five grandchildren. For many years we were closely involved with the work of Scripture Union in independent schools and led many houseparties for teenagers.
