Archdeaconries and Deaneries

Map of the Diocese of PeterboroughThe Diocese is divided into two Archdeaconries, Oakham in the north and Northampton in the south. There is an archdeacon who has oversight over each archdeaconry.  Click here to find out more about the work of archdeacons.

Each archdeaconry is then divided into six deaneries.  A Deanery is a geographical area containing a number of neighbouring churches. The Rural Dean is the missional leader and pastor of a Deanery.  Rural Deans are generally also parish priests who have a specific responsibility for a church or group of churches in their deanery.  A Lay Chair assists the Rural Dean in their leadership of the deanery.
