Born in Derbyshire and schooled in Yorkshire,
Bishop David studied Natural Sciences and Theology at Jesus College, Oxford,
and trained for ordination at Westcott House, Cambridge.
He returned to Yorkshire as a priest,
ministering first in urban Middlesborough, then in a shadow-urban parish
north of Pontefract.
He then moved on to be the Archbishop of York’s chaplain, working firstly with
John Habgood, and then with his successor, David Hope. He was also Director of Ordinands. In September 1997 he moved from Bishopthorpe to be Vicar of Helmsley.
He was collated as a non-residentiary canon of York Minster in 2008.
