Inauguration 30 September 2016

The bishop’s inauguration took place on 30 September.  You can still watch the live feed from the event on Facebook Live.  You can read bishop Steven’s sermon here.

The Bishop of Oxford is Rt Revd Dr Steven Croft.

The Bishop of Oxford is the diocesan or most senior bishop, responsible for oversight of the whole diocese. Because of its large size, the Diocese of Oxford is divided into four smaller ‘episcopal Areas’, each overseen by their own Area Bishop.

In some instances these ‘Areas’ are larger than entire dioceses elsewhere in the Church of England. In addition to his diocese-wide and national responsibilities, the Bishop of Oxford has pastoral care of the two deaneries of Oxford and Cowley, which cover the City of Oxford, right in the heart of the diocese.
