Membership and Mission “ B&W diocese needs to grow in numbers, in confidence, in prayer and in spirituality. Dioceses vary in levels of growth, London and Liverpool are growing, B&W however has lost 11% of its membership in 10 years and 8% over the last 5 years; it is ranked 34 th out of 42. We need to turn this around.”
