The Archdeacons in the Diocese of Liverpool are senior ecclesiastical officers in the Church of England in a highly irregular area surrounding the city of Liverpool. They are the Archdeacons of Liverpool and of Warrington; each one has responsibility over a geographical area within the diocese. The Archdeacons are responsible for the disciplinary supervision of the clergy with their archdeaconries.[1]

History[edit]

The Archdeaconry of Liverpool was originally created on 10 August 1847[2] in the Diocese of Chester and transferred to the Diocese of Liverpool when the latter was created on 9 April 1880.[3] The Archdeaconry of Warrington was created from the Archdeaconry of Liverpool on 17 July 1880. [4] The Liverpool archdeaconry consists of eight area deaneries: Bootle, Huyton, Liverpool North, Liverpool South-Childwall, Sefton, Toxteth and Wavertree, Walton, and West Derby; the Warrington archdeaconry of seven area deaneries: North Meols, Ormskirk, St Helens, Warrington, Widnes, Wigan, and Winwick.

Reorganisation[edit]

Per the diocese's new mission paper, Fit for Mission, prepared by Paul Bayes, the new Bishop of Liverpool,[5] the archdeaconries of the diocese are due to be reorganised not long after the retirement of Peter Bradley as Archdeacon of Warrington at the end of October 2015. On 29 May 2015, it was announced that four archdeaconries would exist after the reorganisation: Liverpool (reduced in size from its current area), Knowsley and Sefton, St Helens and Warrington, and Wigan and West Lancashire;[6] on 9 August three archdeacons-designate were announced, and it was further indicated it was hoped the reorganisation could be completed in time to collate the new archdeacons on 14 November 2015.[7] However, the diocese has previously written that the new archdeacons could begin to act in their roles before their archdeaconries legally exist, if necessary. Depending on how the reorganisation is achieved, one of the three might succeed to the current Archdeaconry of Warrington renamed.
