Before being made Archdeacon, John served as the parish priest at a number of churches in the Edmonton Area of the Diocese of London, including St Matthias and St John Hendon. He has also been Bishop’s Missioner at King’s Cross London since 2013 when he was also made a Prebendary of St Paul’s Cathedral.

Commenting on his appointment John Hawkins said:

“I am delighted to be working alongside fellow archdeacons in the Diocese of London at this very exciting time. This is a wonderful city to be living and working in and there is so much that the church contributes through its brilliant clergy, who I will endeavour to support and encourage as they seek to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ and participate in his mission in our city.”
