Our Archdeacons

Our three Archdeacons
Caption: The Archdeacons of Wells, Taunton & Bath

Each of our three Archdeacons is responsible for a particular geographical areas of the Diocese, known as their Archdeaconry.

They have day-to-day oversight of practical church life, as well as pastoral care for the clergy, and they play an important role in appointing clergy to parish posts. In addition, the Archdeacons share in the central services of the diocese by active involvement in various specific areas such as chairing commitees and working groups.
