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”.
