The Archdeacon Pastor is responsible for ensuring that every part of the diocese is able to work effectively together.
From church building issues to faculty applications, the Archdeacon Pastor can provide advice or signpost you to someone who can answer your queries. They will also support you in a parish vacancy, checking on your welfare, and worshipping with you on occasional Sundays.
Parish life can be complicated and sometimes people fall out. The Archdeacon Pastor plays a critical role in resolving conflicts. With a particular focus on wellbeing, the Archdeacon Pastor also aims to help people flourish.
The diocese is committed to ensuring everyone feels safe in church, and the Archdeacon Pastor works closely with the Diocesan Safeguarding Team to optimise the safety of all in the diocese.
