In 1990, he moved to St Albans diocese, where he served as an incumbent and rural dean, before his preferment as Archdeacon of St Albans in 1999.

Dr Cheetham has chaired the Southwark Diocesan Board of Education, and the C of E’s Continuing Ministerial Development Panel. He leads the diocese’s work on both the environment and interfaith relations. He will remain Co-Director of the project Equipping Christian Leadership in an Age of Science, and a member of the new Anglican Communion Science Commission.
