‘Diocese’ refers to the geographical territory in which a bishop exercises oversight. The Church in Wales is divided into six dioceses each with its own cathedral in which is housed the cathedra (the bishop’s ‘chair’ or ‘throne’).


Prayer sustains our human relationship with God and may involve words (formal or informal) or be silent. Prayer can involve adoration (‘I love you’), confession (‘sorry’), thanksgiving and supplication (‘please’).

Diocesan Prayer

Father, we hold before you our family

in the Diocese of Swansea and Brecon

And we open our hearts and minds to your Spirit:

Bless us as we gather in your name;

Guide us as we grow into the likeness of your Son;

Lead us by your Spirit to go out

and make disciples of others.

God of our journeying, be our way

and our truth and our life;

Our beginning and our end,

we pray through Jesus our Lord.
