The Archdeacon of Ipswich is a senior ecclesiastical officer within the Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich. As such he or she is responsible for the disciplinary supervision of the clergy[1] within its territory.

The archdeaconry was created from the archdeaconries of Suffolk and of Sudbury by Order-in-Council on 22 December 1931.[2] The post has been deliberately left vacant pending a pastoral scheme to dissolve the archdeaconry and divide its territory between Sudbury and Suffolk archdeaconries. The scheme cannot go forward until the next diocesan bishop is in post, but the area has been under the care of the remaining two archdeacons since 2005.[3]

The post has been left vacant since 2005.
