The Archdeaconry of Surrey is the ecclesiastical officer in charge of the archdeaconry of Surrey, a subdivision of the Church of England Diocese of Guildford in the Province of Canterbury.

History[edit]

The whole archdeaconry was historically in the diocese of Winchester; the bishop of Winchester had a principal residence at Farnham Castle in Surrey. So the archdeacon was also rector of St Andrew's Church, Farnham and used Farnham as a centre from which to administer the churches in the area.[1] On 1 May 1927[2] it was separated from the diocese of Winchester and became the diocese of Guildford. On 17 August 1928, the archdeaconry of Dorking was formed out of the archdeaconry of Surrey by Order in Council.[3]

Today the archdeaconry is one of the two archdeaconries in Surrey, the other being the archdeaconry of Dorking. The archdeaconry of Surrey is further subdivided into deaneries, Aldershot, Cranleigh, Farnham, Godalming, Guildford and Surrey Heath.[4]
