From the 14th July, the Church of England diocese in West Yorkshire & the Dales will be known solely by its official, legal name, The Diocese of Leeds. The Bishop of Leeds, the Rt Revd Nick Baines, says, “Since the diocese was created in 2014, we have always legally been the Diocese of Leeds, but we were allowed to informally call ourselves ‘The Diocese of West Yorkshire & the Dales’. The experience of the past two years has shown, however, that having two names for the diocese is too confusing for people both inside and outside the Church”.
Bible Verse of the DayIn God, whose word I praise— in God I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?
God, our refuge and strength, bring near the day when wars shall cease and poverty and pain shall end, that earth may know the peace of heaven through Jesus Christ our Lord.
1 Thessalonians 4 v 13 to end
Matthew 25 v 1 to 13
Wisdom 6 v 12 to 16
God of peace, whose Son Jesus Christ proclaimed the kingdom and restored the broken to wholeness of life: look with compassion on the anguish of the world, and by your healing power make whole both people and nations; through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
