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!

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