The Archdeacon of Leeds, previously Archdeacon of Ripon, is a senior ecclesiastical officer within the Diocese of Leeds. As such he or she is responsible for the disciplinary supervision of the clergy within the four deaneries (Allerton, Armley, Headingley and Whitkirk) making up the archdeaconry of Leeds.[1] Until 2014, the post was in the Diocese of Ripon.

Since the creation of the Diocese of Leeds on 20 April 2014 (approved by the General Synod on 8 July 2013) [2] the archdeaconry forms the Leeds episcopal area.[3] The archdeaconry is vacant following the retirement of Paul Hooper on 31 October 2016;[4] he will be succeeded by Paul Ayers from February 2017.[5] In the interim, Arani Sen is acting archdeacon.[6]

List of archdeacons[edit]

The archdeaconry was founded as the Archdeaconry of Ripon on 31 August 1894.[7]
The archdeaconry was renamed the Archdeaconry of Leeds on 15 March 1921.[11]
