The Rt Revd Dr Steven Croft

The bishop’s inauguration takes place on 30 September.  We will have a live feed from the event on Facebook Live.  Join our page from 2pm to watch. We will also put a video on this page after the service.

The new Bishop of Oxford, Rt Revd Dr Steven Croft will start work in the autumn of 2016.

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.
