Birstall is part of the Birstall Deanery in the Leeds Diocese. We are supported in the work and mission of the church by the Diocese through the Bishops and Church House Staff. Visit the Diocese website here. leeds.anglican.org
The clergy and lay representatives from each parish in the Deanery (which is approximately the area of the ancient parish of Birstall with the addition of the Morley area churches) meet several times a year to discuss the work of the churches in the area and matters pertaining to the life of the national church.
