Stephen Conway Announced as the New Bishop of Ely

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Following the formal announcement and a press conference with the local media, Bishop Stephen spent the day touring the Diocese visiting some of his future colleagues and parishioners.

After meeting Diocesan Office staff and others he visited a farm in Ramsey. He then went to Hampton, the site of a new church, for lunch with others from the Diocese. In the afternoon he met with a headteacher from one of our church schools, and visited a small innovative hi-tech business and one of the Universities in Cambridge. His day concluded at Ely Cathedral where he joined worshippers for Evening Prayer.

Read it all and enjoy the pictures.

Worth noting that this is a very healthy diocese (at least by English standards).

His new see city/cathedral is surely an inspiration! When I visited there some years back, I saw evidence of creative, sound, and thoughtful diocese-wide ministry—of the type I wish we had more of in TEC. However, CofE bishops occupy a rather different place in things then they do here.

#2, noting what #1 writes, the diocese probably won’t remain healthy for very long. Liberal bishops have a way of dragging everything down around them.
