The Diocese of Bradford is a Church of England diocese within the Province of York. The Diocese covers the area of the City of Bradford, Craven district and the former Sedbergh Rural District now in Cumbria.
The seat of the episcopal see is Bradford Cathedral and the bishop is the Bishop of Bradford.
The diocese was founded on 25 November 1919, from part of the Diocese of Ripon. The church of Saint Peter was elevated to cathedral status in 1919.
The diocesan Bishop of Bradford has no suffragan bishops. Alternative episcopal oversight (for parishes in the diocese who reject the ministry of priests who are women) is provided by the provincial episcopal visitor (PEV) the Bishop suffragan of Beverley, the Rt Revd Glyn Webster. He is licensed as an honorary assistant bishop of the diocese in order to facilitate his work there. Besides Webster, there are two retired honorary assistant bishops licensed in the diocese:
On 2 March 2013, the diocesan synod voted in favour of proposals to abolish the diocese in order to create a larger Leeds diocese; the proposal was approved on 8 July 2013 by the General Synod.
