What is the Diocese of St Asaph

Supporting the churches and communities in North East and Mid Wales

The Diocese of St Asaph is one of six dioceses which make up the Church in Wales, an independent province of the Anglican Communion.  The Church in Wales separated from the Church of England in 1920 and is celebrating the centenary of its establishment in 2020.

More than 7,000 people from across north east and mid Wales regularly participate in services, events and activities in the 216 churches which make up the diocese.  It covers the counties of Denbighshire, Flintshire, Wrexham, half of Conwy and part of Gwynedd and Powys.

The diocese is an ancient way of organising the church and simply means the area (usually geographical) over which a Bishop has control.  Bishop Gregory Cameron, is the 79th Bishop of St Asaph.

You are never more than a few miles away from an active Church in Wales church in the Diocese of St Asaph and a warm welcome awaits where ever you wish to attend.
