On the 31 December 2019 we said farewell to the Rev Olivia Coles who has stepped down from the role of Baptism+ Coordinator, working within the Development team at the Diocese of Ely.
Olivia says; “It has been a joy to work for the Diocese over the last couple of years and a wonderful opportunity to meet with so many clergy and lay across the Diocese. I am really grateful to have been involved in encouraging and supporting baptism ministry; and especially the follow up with baptism families, alongside ‘joining the dots’ with U5’s ministry. I am passionate about ministry with families and will be continuing to focus on this, in my role as a parish priest. I hope that the soon to be published baptism toolkit will be a useful tool to inspire ministry and relationships with baptism families to develop and flourish. I will much miss working with a great team but delighted to still be part of the Diocese.”
