The Team


I'm Steve Dixon, the Vicar of Holy Saviour's.
After growing up in Lancashire and Yorkshire, I moved to the North East in 2003. Before my time in ministry I had various jobs as a TV broadcast engineer, cabinet maker, shop fitter, and development engineer/manager in a CCTV manufacturing company.
My ministry began when I was in my late teens as a church youth leader. In 2003, after training in Sheffield, I was commissioned as an Evangelist in the Church Army, serving in Byker and Willington Quay. I was ordanied in 2015 after training locally and came to Tynemouth in 2018.
I have always had the blessing of knowing God in my life, being brought up in a Christian home. My personal commitment to Jesus came in my early teens and God has taken me on a journey of adventure ever since.
I am married to Clare and we have two grown up children. My hobbies include vintage aircraft restoration and classic car restoration.

'My name is Malcolm Railton and married to Glynis. We have two grown up children, Mark and Rebecca, and a grandson Dylan.
I grew up in the north east of England, mainly in Boldon, leaving the area in 1986 to join the Metropolitan Police. After about eight years we returned to the north east and I completed my police career with Durham Constabulary. I was involved in a variety of roles but my happiest times were spent as a dog handler.
Since retiring from the police service, I have continued to be involved in music, my main hobby. Although I no longer play brass instruments I am still involved with a small number of bands playing guitar, bass guitar and double bass.
Why am I training for Ordination in the Church of England? That’s the big question and I often find it difficult to put into words. That may be because God’s calling is beyond words, certainly beyond mine. However, I do not see my new role being radically different from my previous one. Service, love and care for others is at the heart of both. You may be thinking where does God come into being a police officer but if we remember that God is everywhere and in all things why wouldn’t he be there. God’s presence may not always be obvious but he is always with us.'
Malcom is currently Curate at Holy Saviour's Tynemouth.
