The Archdeacon of Oxford is a senior ecclesiastical officer in the Diocese of Oxford, England. Among her or his responsibilities, she or he has 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 was split to create the new Dorcester archdeaconry;[1] Oxford archdeaconry now includes only Oxford itself, whereas the rest of Oxfordshire is now in the Archdeaconry of Dorchester.

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