Diocese of Leeds receives £4.2 million boost for churches in Bradford


Key Christian mission projects in the Diocese of Leeds are to receive a £4.2 million boost, thanks to funding from the Church of England

The Strategic Development Funding grant will help support least ten churches in the Bradford Episcopal Area and encourage new worshippers and lay leaders.

There will also be further investment in city centre worship, as the grant includes a second stage of funding for Fountains Church, a former nightclub, to finish building works and improvements ahead of Bradford’s high profile role as City of Culture 2025.
