The Revd Kate Peacock – Dean of Women’s Ministry
Email Kate; Tel: 01727 818153
I was ordained in 2003, and have spent much of my ministry in rural settings in both Ely and St Alban’s dioceses. I moved in April 2018 to be the Senior Church Growth Officer for the Diocese, a role which I love, as I seek to enable and encourage parishes in their mission; through training, Mission Action Planning and coaching. My interest in women’s ordination began when I remember, as a teenager, being outraged when I was told that women couldn’t be ordained priest! I look forward to working with and supporting my sisters in ministry in this diocese, and please do get in touch if there’s anything you would like to discuss. I am also a member of the Executive Committee for the National Association of Diocesan Advisors in Women’s Ministry.
The Revd Lucy Davis – Assistant Dean of Women’s Ministry
I have been Vicar of Flitwick since 2015. Home is a full and noisy place, occupied by three teenagers, two dogs and my husband Anthony. My focus on the ministry of women in the Church came from the shockwaves when, soon after I was ordained, the measure to allow the ordination of women to episcopate was defeated. Since then, it has been a joy to mentor a number of women at various stages of their discernment and training, and I look forward to getting to know all the women ministers, across the Diocese.
