The Archdeacon of Oxford is a senior ecclesiastical officer in the Diocese of Oxford, England. The office responsibility includes the care of clergy and church buildings within the area of the Archdeaconry of Oxford.

History[edit]

The first archdeacon of Oxford is recorded before 1092 – around the time when archdeacons were first appointed across England – in the Diocese of Lincoln, he was one of eight archdeacons appointed by the bishop: Lincoln, Huntingdon, Northampton, Leicester, Buckingham, Bedford and Stow.

In the Henrican Reorganization, the archdeaconry was transferred to the newly-erected Diocese of Oxford in 1546. On 1 March 2014, the Archdeaconry of Oxford was split to create the new Archdeaconry of Dorchester;[1] the Archdeaconry of Oxford now consists solely of the City of Oxford itself, whereas the rest of the county of Oxfordshire is now in the Archdeaconry of Dorchester; the Archdeacon of Oxford continues to be Residentiary Canon of Christ Church and has strategic roles across the Diocese of Oxford as a whole, for example as Interfaith Advisor.

The present Archdeacon of Oxford is Martin Gorick, who was installed in Christ Church on 4 May 2013.[2]
