Early life

Educated at Ipswich School, The Queen's College, Oxford, and Pembroke College, Cambridge, Wheatley trained for ordination at the College of the Resurrection and Ripon Hall, Oxford and was ordained in 1973.

Ordained ministry

Wheatley served his curacy at All Saints Church, Fulham, becoming vicar of Holy Cross in St Pancras, London in 1978. In 1982, he moved to become priest-in-charge of All Souls' Hampstead and St Mary's Kilburn. He also became vicar of St James' in West Hampstead at this time.

While remaining a parish priest, Wheatley became the Director of Post-Ordination Training in 1988 for the Edmonton area. Between 1988 and 1993, he was also Area Dean of North Camden and was a member of the General Synod from 1975 to 1995. He became Archdeacon of Hampstead in 1995.

Wheatley was consecrated as Bishop of Edmonton in March 1999.

He announced his intention to retire at the end of 2014 to the London Diocesan Synod on 17 July 2014. He retired from full-time ministry on 31 December 2014.

Doctrinal positions

Wheatley is opposed to the ordination of women as priests and bishops. In 2008 he was one of several hundred clergy who signed an open letter from Forward in Faith calling upon the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, as co-chairmen of the Church of England's General Synod, to ensure that legal protections established in 1992 for those clergy who were conscientiously unable to accept the ordination of women be preserved. This was in response to a proposal in General Synod that the statutory legal protections concerned should be replaced with a merely advisory "Code of Practice".

Personal life

Wheatley is allegedly gay. By 2003, he had been sharing his home with his partner for eight years. He has stated that he is "a celibate Christian living by Christian teachings".
