Are you an 18-30 year old exploring your Christian calling and willing to engage with the prayer and vision of the Diocese of Ely to be ‘generous and visible people of Jesus Christ’?

Are you willing to engage fully and courageously with the needs of a major university city that has the biggest disparity of wealth and poverty in England?
