Middlesbrough Deanery

Middlesbrough Deanery is the most northerly point of the Diocese of York, taking in the town of Middlesbrough up to the River Tees. Home to over 174,000 people, Middlesbrough was the birthplace of the explorer Captain James Cook. Famous sites include the Transporter Bridge and the Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art. Find out more about the churches in Middlesbrough Deanery here.

Archbishop Sentamu recently visited the Middlesbrough Deanery on his Pilgrimage of Prayer, Witness & Blessing. We hear from the Archbishop at Middlesbrough College and at BBC Radio Tees about the Pilgrimage as well as from the volunteers at Teesside Hospice and of people who have encountered the Archbishop in this week...
