Welcome to the website of the Diocese of Ripon and Leeds.
Our diocese stretches from North Yorkshire and the edge of County Durham through to the heart of West Yorkshire, and is made up of a network of Anglican churches serving people from all walks of life. The largest centre of population in our diocese is the city of Leeds, whilst our cathedral is in the city of Ripon.
It is across this range of rural and urban landscapes that we are called to minister.
December's edition of Together includes Bishop John's last letter to the diocese, where he reflects on his ministry as our bishop for the past thirteen years.
Together is one of the easiest ways you can find out what's happening in churches across your diocese. Order more copies for your church at just 6p each by emailing Julie Milbourne or ringing (0113) 2000540.
