Revd Dr. Robin Gibbons, ChCh Canon 2We warmly congratulate the Revd Dr Robin Gibbons, who has been chosen as one of twelve new  honorary Canons at Oxford’s Christ Church Cathedral.  The new canons were commissioned during an Evensong at the Cathedral on Saturday, January 23rd. Canons are selected because of their work within the Diocese of Oxford and the wider church.  Dr. Gibbons, Alexander Schmemann Professor of Eastern Christianity  at the GTF is also a member of the Faculty of Theology at the University of Oxford.  He is Pastoral Director of the Oxford Theology Summer School and the Director of the Department for Continuing Education’s flagship OUSSA Summer School.
