The administrative centre of the Diocese is the Diocesan Office The Diocese of Durham is a network of people, places and organisations, and they need to be resourced and supported for their life and work. Some of this support comes from Boards and committees and some from a rich array of local and national resource agencies.

Behind the complexity of a modern diocese, however, is its secret life of prayer and worship which is the real ‘operating system’ upon which it all depends.

This part of the website will take you into the abundant resources, both tangible and less obvious, on which the diocese draws. There are links to many different agencies and their national websites. It makes available material of both general and particular interest, and also provides for dedicated access to reports, documents and minutes.
