The Bishop of Ebbsfleet is a suffragan bishop who fulfils the role of a provincial episcopal visitor for the whole of the Province of Canterbury in the Church of England.
The position was created in 1994 and licensed by the Archbishop of Canterbury as a "flying bishop" to provide episcopal oversight for parishes throughout the province which do not accept the sacramental ministry of bishops who have participated in the ordination of women. The position is named after Ebbsfleet in Thanet, Kent. In the southern province, the Bishops of Ebbsfleet and of Richborough each minister in thirteen of the 40 dioceses. The Bishop of Ebbsfleet serves the western thirteen dioceses (Birmingham, Bristol, Coventry, Derby, Exeter, Gloucester, Hereford, Lichfield, Oxford, Salisbury, Truro, Bath and Wells and Worcester).
Jonathan Baker was consecrated as a bishop on 16 June 2011 at Southwark Cathedral, however on 31 October 2012 it was announced that he is to be the next Bishop of Fulham in the Diocese of London, thus a new Bishop of Ebbsfleet is expected to be announced in the first half of 2013.
