Welcome to our diocesan website. You’ll find there’s a great deal of ‘nuts and bolts’ information on this site for clergy, lay ministers and all those other people involved in the vital day-to-day running of our churches – all 815 of them! But we hope you’ll also get a feel of the rich life of our communities and some of the people who make them up.

Updated information about Annual Meetings for 2017, including election of lay representatives to deanery synod, now available.
