Genders was educated at King Edward VI Grammar School, Birmingham and Brasenose College, Oxford during which time his studies were interrupted by wartime service with the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve.
After graduation Genders taught briefly at Dame Allan's School (where he succeeded South African theologian John Suggitt) and then began a long association with the College of the Resurrection, Mirfield, becoming a monk in 1952. In 1955 he was sent as a tutor to Codrington College, Barbados eventually becoming its principal. A decade later he was sent to Rhodesia, working first in Penhalonga before being appointed Archdeacon of Manicaland.
In 1977, Donald Coggan, the Archbishop of Canterbury, asked him accept the Bermuda bishopric vacated by the death of Robert Stopford. Five turbulent years later he returned to the College of the Resurrection where he remained for 26 years until his death.
