The Bishop of Huntingdon
The Rt Revd Dr Dagmar Winter, East Anglia’s first female bishop, was appointed in 2019.
Bishop Dagmar works alongside the Bishop of Ely, The Rt Revd Stephen Conway, across the whole Diocese, which comprises Cambridgeshire, the western quarter of Norfolk, south Peterborough, and some adjacent parishes.
Bishop Dagmar is of British and Swiss-German descent and studied theology at various universities including Aberdeen and Heidelberg, where she completed a PhD in New Testament studies, a continued interest.
She served her title from 1996 - 1999 in Bromley, Rochester Diocese, before becoming Associate Vicar and Deanery Training Officer at Hexham Abbey. From 2006 she was Rural Affairs Officer for the Diocese of Newcastle, as well as Priest-in-Charge of a group of rural parishes in Morpeth Deanery, Northumberland. 2015 saw her return to Hexham as Rector, before moving to Ely in 2019.
Bishop Dagmar is the sponsoring bishop for the Diocese, meaning she has particular responsibility for ordinands and curates, and she also oversees our Licensed Lay Ministers (Readers).
You may see her out and about in the Fens, walking and running with her lurcher, Tilda.
