Eleven new Cambridgeshire priests, two of which will serve in Ely and 10 deacons, will be ordained in Ely Cathedral next weekend.
The ordinations – of priests on the Saturday afternoon, deacons the following morning – will follow rehearsals and three days of retreat, starting on June 30.
Revd Julia Chamberlin and Revd David Newton will be ‘priested’ at 5pm on the Saturday.
Julia was born in Norfolk and has been a clergy wife for 22 years. She formerly served as the children’s and families adviser for Ely Diocese. She combined her final year of ordination training with part-time primary school teaching.
She leads women’s ministry at All Saints’, Milton, where her husband David is rector, and is a regular speaker at New Wine national and local conferences and churches. She also supports the growth and development of prayer spaces in schools locally.

The ordinations take place on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3.
