Proposed Diocesan Changes

I’ve created an interactive map to show the proposed changes to Church of England dioceses in the north. Put your mouse over the dioceses in the north to see how each is affected.

Wakefield, Ripon and Leeds and Bradford dioceses are combined into a new enlarged Wakefield diocese. This new diocese loses parishes to Carlisle, Blackburn, Durham and Sheffield. Sheffield loses parishes to York and Lincoln. Other parishes (not shown) are asked to consider whether they move to York diocese.

FWIW I think this is finally evidence that the CofE is thinking practically about resource allocation.
