Archdeacons share in the mission of the Church, exercising their ministry in close collaboration with the Bishop, and play a significant role in the appointment, oversight, pastoral care and discipline of clergy.
The Archdeacons ensure that the Bishop is aware of the needs and concerns of the clergy and people. They induct and install ministers, conduct visitations of parishes, admit and care for churchwardens and act as a bridge between parish and diocese in matters concerning church buildings and faculties, pastoral reorganisation and parsonages.
The Archdeacon of Oakham has the oversight of the six Deaneries in the north of the Diocese. The Archdeacon of Northampton has the oversight of the six Deaneries in the south of the Diocese. To find out more about the Deaneries please click here.
