Archdeacons in the Diocese in Europe

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The archdeacons in the Diocese in Europe are senior clergy of the Church of England Diocese in Europe. They each have responsibility over their own archdeaconry, of which there are currently seven, each of which is composed of one or more deaneries, which are composed in turn of chaplaincies (as opposed to the parishes of the mainland and Manx dioceses). They share this task with running a local church in their area, although the Diocese in Europe is working towards a new system whereby there will be four full-time archdeacons instead.[1]

The current roles of archdeacons are set down in the diocese's 1995 constitution.[2]

On 24 May 2015, it was announced that Colin Williams would become full-time "Archdeacon of Europe" from October 2015, that he would take charge of both the Eastern archdeaconry and that of Germany and Northern Europe, and that he would be based in Frankfurt, Germany.[3]

Archdeacons of Gibraltar [edit]

The archdeaconry covers the Western Mediterranean, including Andorra, Spain, Portugal, Morocco, Madeira and the Balearic and Canary Islands. The area deaneries include Algarve (Portugal), Puerto de la Cruz (Tenerife) and Palma de Mallorca.[4] In 2013, the archdeaconry synod voted to change its name to "Iberia and Gibraltar",[5] but it is not known whether or when this change has been effected. The Cathedral Church is that of the Holy Trinity in Gibraltar.

The archdeacon's position has been vacant since 2013; the acting archdeacon is Geoff Johnston, chaplain of Nerja and Almuñécar, Spain.[4]

Archdeacons of Malta, of Malta and of Italy and Malta[edit]

The archdeaconry covers the Central Mediterranean including Italy, Sicily and Malta. There is a Pro-Cathedral of St Paul in Valletta, Malta.[4]

Jonathan Boardman, chaplain of All Saints Rome, is also the Archdeacon of Italy and Malta.[4]

Until 1978, the title was Archdeacon in/of Malta:
Records indicate that, from 1865 until 1925, the chaplain in Valletta was also archdeacon of Malta:
In 1925, a third archdeaconry was created and the relationship between the two roles seems to have ended:
Evans is recorded as Archdeacon in Italy after he was Archdeacon of Malta; the former may have been simply a renaming of the latter, especially since he retained his chaplaincy.
Devenport is referred to retrospectively as Archdeacon of Italy and Malta,[36] but his successors have all used that form:
  • 1998–2000 (res.): Bill Edebohls, chaplain of Milan[37]
  • 2000–2003 (res.): Gordon Reid, chaplain of Milan with Lake Como and Genoa[38]
  • 2003–2005: vacancy?
  • 2005–2009 (ret.): Arthur Siddall, chaplain of Naples with Sorrento, Capri and Bari (until 2007), Archdeacon of Switzerland and chaplain of Montreux with Anzere, Gstaad and Monthey (from 2007)[39]
  • 2009–present: Jonathan Boardman, chaplain of Rome[40]

Archdeacons of the Aegean and of the Eastern Archdeaconry[edit]

The Eastern Archdeaconry covers Eastern Europe – the Greater Athens deanery (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Greece, the Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia and Turkey), the Moscow deanery (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kosovo, Moldova, Mongolia, Poland, Russia, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan, based at St Andrew's, Moscow ) and the area for which the archdeacon takes direct responsibility (Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia and Slovenia). The archdeacon, Patrick Curran, is based in Austria as chaplain of Christ Church, Vienna.[4] The title was Archdeacon of the Aegean until 1994. On 24 May 2015, it was announced that he would resign before October 2015.[3]

Before 1994, the archdeaconry was called the Aegean.
  • 1935–1947 (ret.): John Sharp, Archdeacon in South-Eastern Europe and a canon of St Paul's Cathedral, Valletta.[41]
  • 1971–1977 (ret.): Stephen Skemp, chaplain of Ankara then Athens[42][43]
  • 1978–1994 (res.): Geoffrey Evans, "Archdeacon of the Aegean and the Danube"[44] chaplain of Ïzmir with Bornova[45]
After Evans' resignation, the archdeaconry was renamed the Eastern Archdeaconry.

Archdeacons of North-West Europe[edit]

The area deaneries comprise Belgium & Luxembourg (based at St. Boniface Church, Antwerp) and The Netherlands (based at Christ Church, Amsterdam).
