The Bishop's Leadership Team

Although the policies, practices and activity across the Diocese is synodically governed, the Diocese is led, inspired and encouraged by the Diocesan Bishop, the Bishop of Durham.

The Bishop keeps in touch with all aspects of diocesan life through a team of senior colleagues who each have their own connections, contacts and networks across the Diocese which allow them to stay informed. 

This supports the Bishop in his role and helps him to make decisions on the best ways to support parishes in carrying forward the diocesan vision and strategy and to inspire all those serving in parishes to bless our communities in Jesus name for the transformation of us all.
