The Archdeacon of Lichfield (called Archdeacon of Stafford until 1980) is a senior cleric in the Diocese of Lichfield who is responsible for some pastoral care and discipline of clergy in the Lichfield archdeaconry.

The archdeaconry was erected – as the Archdeaconry of Stafford – in the ancient Diocese of Coventry (later called Coventry and Lichfield, Lichfield and Coventry & Lichfield) before 1135, around the time when archdeacons were first being appointed across England. On 24 July 1877, the archdeaconry of Stoke-upon-Trent was created from the northern part of the Stafford archdeaconry.[1] After the deanery of Stafford was transferred on 26 September 1979 to the Stoke archdeaconry,[2] Stafford archdeaconry was renamed the archdeaconry of Lichfield on 25 April 1980.[3]

The current incumbent is the Ven Simon Baker.
