The Archdeacon of Ipswich is a senior ecclesiastical officer within the Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich. As such, she or he is responsible for the disciplinary supervision of the clergy[1] within its territory.

A few very early Archdeacons of Suffolk were called "Archdeacon of Ipswich". (These are listed at that article.)[2]

The archdeaconry was created from the archdeaconries of Suffolk and of Sudbury by Order-in-Council on 22 December 1931.[3] The post has been deliberately left vacant pending a pastoral scheme to dissolve the archdeaconry and divide its territory between Sudbury and Suffolk archdeaconries. The scheme could not go forward until the next diocesan bishop (Seeley) was in post, but the area has been under the care of the remaining two archdeacons since 2005.[4] In autumn 2018, the archdeaconry was advertised, with a much smaller territory — only the Ipswich city deanery — and a brief overseeing church plants and fresh expressions.[5] Rhiannon King was collated to this role on Lady Day (25 March) 2019.[6]

List of archdeacons[edit]

The post was vacant from 2005 to 2019, when it was re-created with different boundaries.
