John Richard Allan Llewellin (born 30 September 1938) is a retired Anglican bishop in the Church of England.[1][2][3][4][5]

Llewellin was educated at Clifton College, Bristol[6] and Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge. He was ordained in 1964 and was a curate at Radlett. After serving a second curacy at Johannesburg Cathedral, and being expelled from South Africa by the apartheid Nationalist government of the day in 1971, he was then successively the Vicar of Waltham Cross, the Rector of Harpenden[7] and a canon of Truro Cathedral and ordained to the episcopate as the suffragan Bishop of St Germans (1985–92).

He later became the suffragan Bishop of Dover (1992–99) and was subsequently appointed Bishop at Lambeth and Chief of Staff to the Archbishop by the then Archbishop of Canterbury, a position he held until 2003. While serving as Bishop of Dover he was appointed an honorary fellow of Canterbury Christ Church University.[8] He also served as Chairman of the Anglican Society for the Welfare of Animals from 2004 until 2013.[9]
