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.

Welcome to our new bishop!
