From our Street Pastors to our support of Foodbanks, we are at the heart of many projects helping to transform and enhance people’s lives in all our urban and rural communities.
We are proud to be one of the largest providers of schools in our region, ensuring our children have the best possible education to give them the brightest start in life.
We have published information and guidance in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic including details of churches live streaming services. The latest communication from Bishop Christine, issued 5 January 2021, can be found here.
