The Rt Revd
Bishop of Ely
Welcome from the Bishop
A very warm welcome to all visitors to this website. This site offers resources, guidance and inspiration to all those in the Diocese, helping us to grow a confident Christian presence in every community in our region.
It is hoped the resources on this website will help support the Diocesan Strategy for Growth, People Fully Alive: Ely 2025, by equipping parishes and church communities with the tools they need to realise the five Diocesan Strategy Levers: Nurture a confident people of God, Develop healthy churches, Serve the community, Re-imagine our buildings and Target support to key areas.
However you personally do this and wherever you are in your own personal journey of faith, support, prayer and encouragement are weaved into all on offer here. Browse, discover, be inspired and may God bless all that you do in his service.
