The Diocese is organised into 5 departments, and the Parishes are grouped into 7 Archdeaconries

The Parishes tab at the top of this page will lead you to the Archdeaconries and the parishes that make up each Archdeaconry. Most of our parishes are made up of many chapelries and congregations, each of which has the same "status" - we do not have "mother churches" or "outstations".


The Departments are:

1) The Bishop's Ministry

2) Governance

3) Growing the Church

5) Organisations


The Parishes are organised into 7 Archdeaconries:

  5. All members discovering their gifts and using them in ministry & mission
  6. Community development and work-creating projects wherever we have property.
