see of Huntingdon


After ten years of service in the Diocese of Ely, the Rt Revd Dr David Thomson, former Bishop of Huntingdon, retired and moved to Hereford to be near some of his family. Bishop David's farewell service was held at the Cathedral at on Sunday 23rd September.

At Diocesan Synod on the 20th October 2018, Bishop Stephen introduced the proposed job description and person specification for the new Bishop of Huntingdon, and outlined the process towards the appointment.

Members of Synod were invited to join in table-talk discussing the paperwork and reflecting on the needs of the diocese.

Feedback was collated and the room agreed unanimously to ask Bishop Stephen to request the national church’s approval to continue with the process to appoint a new Bishop of Huntington.

If approved, it is likely a new person will not be in post until September 2019.
