The Archdeacons

The role of Archdeacons is pastoral, administrative, disciplinary and quasi-judicial across the diocese, but with special responsibility for the archdeaconry. The Archdeacons assist and support the Suffragan Bishops in their leadership of the Diocesan Mission Strategy.

The Archdeacons take responsibility for particular spheres of work, especially in ensuring good order and process in order to nurture and strengthen the foundations of the Diocese’s work to enable mission, leadership and growth in the Diocese.
