The Archdeacon of Coventry was a senior ecclesiastical officer in the Church of England Diocese of Coventry. The post ended in 2012 with the creation of the Archdeacon Pastor role to replace it.

History[edit]

The post was historically within the Diocese of Lichfield beginning in the 12th century – around the time when archdeacon first started to occur in England. From 24 January 1837, the archdeaconry was in the Diocese of Worcester,[1] and since 6 September 1918 it has been in the Diocese of Coventry.[2] From 2009, the archdeacon of Coventry also had statutory oversight over the Archdeaconry of Warwick, delegated from the Archdeacon Missioner, in preparation for the merging of the two archdeaconries.[3] This arrangement may or may not still be legally in effect following the end of the Archdeacon of Coventry role in favour of that of Archdeacon Pastor.[4]
