Welcome to our Diocese DISCOVER OUR VISION hands gardening caring for creation
As part of the Church of England we serve over a million people through our network of around 300 churches across the city and county of Nottinghamshire, with two in South Yorkshire, and 73 church schools. We seek to live for Jesus and make his grace and truth known for everyone in our world today.

Our Vision

We believe there is nothing better anyone can do with their life than become a follower of Jesus Christ. For this reason we are committed to Growing Disciples, reaching wider in every community, connecting with younger generations to pass on the Good News of Jesus, and nurturing deeper roots of faith.

Our Diocese

We serve over a million people and represent the Church of England in Nottinghamshire and two parishes in South Yorkshire, sharing our faith, supporting communities and seeking the transforming presence of God to express Christianity in diverse, inclusive and vibrant ways across urban, suburban, estate, rural village, market town and post-industrial contexts.

Our People

Every person in each local church is called to join in with the mission of God. We seek to help and care for people in all the communities across our diocese, making a difference in living for Christ.
