The Diocese of Waikato and Taranaki is one of the thirteen dioceses and hui amorangi (Maori Dioceses) of the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia. The diocese covers the area from the Waikato to the area surrounding Mount Taranaki on the north island of New Zealand.
The diocese was established in 1926 as the Diocese of Waikato, with Cecil Arthur Cherrington being the first bishop. In 2010, the name of the diocese was changed to the Diocese of Waikato and Taranaki. This reflects the structure of the diocese, with two bishoprics and two co-presiding bishops.
The seat of the Bishop of Taranaki is at the Taranaki Cathedral Church of St Mary. The incumbent Bishop of Taranaki is Philip Richardson (who has been the archbishop of the New Zealand dioceses since 1 May 2013).
