List of Anglican Communion dioceses

  (Redirected from List of Anglican dioceses)

This is an alphabetical list of bishops and archbishops of the Anglican Communion, with links to articles about their dioceses or provinces where possible.

As of 2019 the Anglican Communion (as recognised by the Anglican Consultative Council) consists of 859 dioceses and 18 additional Ordinary jurisdictions (see list below) giving a total of 877 bishops; this total includes 74 archbishops (or equivalents, such as 'Presiding Bishop'), of whom 40 have the status of 'primate', and membership of the Primates' Meeting. There are, additionally, many suffragan or assistant bishops, as well as bishops of non-Anglican churches that are also in full communion with the Archbishop of Canterbury through arrangements such as the Porvoo Communion.

There is also a number of bishops in different denominations of the Continuing Anglican movement. Continuing Anglicanism is outside the Anglican Communion.

ArchbishopsEdit

Primatial archbishops shown at first level, and additional metropolitan archbishops (of the same national or regional church) at second level (indented). The most common title for Primates and Metropolitans is 'Archbishop', but some of those listed, whilst carrying out a similar function, bear an alternative title (such as Presiding Bishop, or Bishop Primus) for historical reasons.

BishopsEdit

This is a list of Anglican Diocesan Bishops only. It does not include suffragan bishops, area bishops, coadjutor bishops, assistant bishops, or bishops of ordinariates.
