White was educated at University College Cardiff, after which he was a social worker for nine years. He was ordained in 1980 and was a curate at St Nicholas' Church, Durham and then hospital chaplain at the University Hospital of North Durham, vicar of Birtley, Rural Dean of Chester-le-Street and Archdeacon of Sunderland before his ordination to the episcopate in 2002 as the Bishop of Brixworth in the Diocese of Peterborough. For much of 2008 and 2009 he deputised for Ian Cundy, Bishop of Peterborough, before Cundy's death from cancer. A keen ornithologist, he has strong views on why fewer and fewer Anglicans regularly attend church. He is a supporter of his hometown football team, Newcastle United. In May 2010 it was announced that White would become the Assistant Bishop of Newcastle from 28 November 2010.
