Our previous Vicar

Rev. (now Canon) Stephen Leeke was inducted on Tuesday 11th September 2001 (a date memorable for other reasons) at 7:30 p.m. by the Bishop of Huntingdon and the Archdeacon of Ely.

Stephen is married to Margaret, was born in 1950, and has six adult children. He was trained for the ministry at Ridley Hall, and ordained deacon in 1984 and priest in 1985. He was curate at St Andrew’s, Cherry Hinton from 1984 to 1987.

From 1987 until his move to St Martin’s Stephen was priest-in-charge/rector of Warboys, Bury, Wistow and Broughton, and also since 1992 Rural Dean of St Ives.

In March 2005, Stephen was appointed an Honorary Canon of Ely Cathedral.

Stephen retired in 2015. His last Sunday was 19th July. He and Margaret will be living in Ely in retirement.
