Very Rev Dr Pete Wilcox

Cathedral Dean and Dean of Liverpool

0151 702 7220

Pete came to Liverpool with 25 years’ experience in ordained ministry. He trained at Ridley Hall in Cambridge after completing a degree in modern history at Durham University. After serving as a curate on Teesside, he studied for a doctorate at Oxford University, before returning to Durham Diocese to serve as a team vicar in the Parish of Gateshead, while assisting in the training of ordinands at Cranmer Hall as Director of its Urban Mission Centre. Theological education and training remains a key area of interest for Pete, and Bible teaching is his chief passion.

In 1998 he took up a new position as priest in charge of St Paul’s Church at the Crossing in Walsall – an ambitiously re-ordered town centre church combining the leadership of a Christian social enterprise with that of a thriving congregation. He established a mandated ministry leadership team there, committed to empowering and facilitating the contribution of the whole people of God in mission. Between August 2006 and July 2012 he was Canon Chancellor at Lichfield Cathedral, a post which involved oversight of the Cathedral’s work in education and outreach.

He is married to a writer, Catherine Fox. They have two adult sons. Pete is a fan of all ball sports, and follows the fortunes of Newcastle United especially closely. He is the author of three books: ‘Living the Dream’ (2007), ‘Walking the Walk (2009) and ‘Talking the Talk’ (2011).
