The Bishop of Ely is pleased to announce the appointment of The Revd Dr Megan Daffern as Diocesan Director of Ordinands and Vocations

Posted on Thursday 6 December 2018
Megan is currently Chaplain of Jesus College, Oxford University, where she has encouraged a wide range of vocations over her nine and a half years in post.

She says: “I am delighted by the opportunity to work with individuals and parishes across Ely Diocese, and I am looking forward to getting to know all the different and varied communities where ministry is happening now, and will happen in new ways into the future.  I am passionate about caring for people who want to serve Christ and I’m excited by the possibilities of helping God’s people become who they truly are.” 

Bishop Stephen adds “I am so pleased that Megan has accepted this role, and I am confident that, together with Linda and other colleagues, she will enable us to grow our culture of vocation across the diocese in new and proactive ways as we discern where God is calling people into different kinds of ministries.”

Megan is also a member of the Third Order of the Society of St. Francis, and teaches and writes about the Old Testament. Her recent Lent Book on the Psalms, “Songs of the Spirit” (SPCK 2017), has been widely appreciated across the Church.

She will take up her new role in the diocese before Easter.
