The Bishop of Argentina is a bishop in the Anglican communion, the head of the Anglican Diocese of Argentina within the Anglican Church of South America.

The diocese was founded in 1910 from the Diocese of the Falkland Islands.[1]

The diocesan seat is the cathedral of St John the Baptist in Buenos Aires, which at one time succeeded the Falkland Islands as the episcopal seat for the whole of South America but it is now the seat for the Diocese of Argentina only.

The incumbent diocesan bishop is Gregory James Venables (born 1949), who was appointed in 2002.
