The Diocese of Oxford is divided into four smaller ‘episcopal Areas’, each overseen by their own Area Bishop.

The Buckingham Episcopal Area extends from north of Milton Keynes all the way south through Buckinghamshire, to Slough. It includes sparsely populated rural communities, county towns and commuter belt on the fringes of the capital.

The Bishop of Buckingham is the Rt Revd Dr Alan Wilson. Bishop Alan has served in the Diocese of Oxford since 1979, and has been Bishop of Buckingham since October 2003. Before that he was Rector of Sandhurst and Area Dean of Sonning.

The Buckingham Area is divided into ten deaneries: Amersham, Aylesbury, Buckingham, Burnham & Slough, Claydon, Milton Keynes, Mursley, Newport, Wendover and Wycombe.
