The Wakefield Office is situated at 1 South Parade, Wakefield. It provides a base for the resource teams and administration. Visitors are welcome and committee rooms are available for meetings if booked in advance.

The parishes are the primary area of the church’s work in the diocese. Parishes are assisted in their ministry by a number of resource teams that are based at the Wakefield Office.

The team working in the Wakefield Office provides the necessary backup for diocesan officials and clergy, as well as conducting all the central finance and administration work of the diocese.
