2014 has already proven to be a really exciting year for Bradford! Not only do we have the transformation of the City with the Westfield development happening before our eyes (and more investment coming into the City centre on the back of it) but we also have the announcement that the Bishop of Bradford, the Rt Revd Nick Baines, will be the first Bishop of Leeds in the new Diocese of West Yorkshire and the Dales. We know Bishop Nick to be a great communicator and we shall look forward to working with him and the other cathedrals and dioceses in our new life together. Suddenly it feels as if there is a lot of energy around in this City and the Cathedral is looking forward to playing its part in the new Diocese and regeneration of the City. Bradford Cathedral stands for a Christian faith that is significantly engaged with church and society but as a building it is also a wonderfully welcoming and prayerful space for all people.
The Reverend Jerry Lepine
Dean of Bradford

Help, there’s an Asylum Seeker in my church!
15 March, Bradford Cathedral, 10am – 3pm
You are invited to the West Yorkshire regional conference to find out how your church can engage with and support asylum seekers in your area. Funded by Tearfund, this conference is designed to help members of any church understand more about the asylum system in the UK and explore how they can better support asylum seekers in both church and the wider community.
Join with other churches from across West Yorkshire to hear from a number of experts, asylum seekers and charities and find out why and how you can play your part.
Please see the attached booking form for more details and pass on the details to people you know who may be interested.
