The Episcopal Diocese of Springfield is a diocese of the Episcopal Church in the United States of America. It is located in the state of Illinois and includes the area east of the Illinois River and south of the Counties of Woodford, Livingston, Ford, and Iroquois. The diocese was founded when the former Episcopal Diocese of Illinois split into three separate Dioceses (Springfield, Quincy, and Chicago) in 1877.

The bishop, the Right Reverend Daniel Hayden Martins, was consecrated on 19 March 2011. He succeeded Peter Hess Beckwith, who had served since 1992.
