The Bishop of Oxford

The Bishop of Oxford is Rt Revd Dr Steven Croft. You can contact him by email or via his EA Marian Green on 01865 208222. For media enquiries and interview requests, please contact the Director of Communications, Steven Buckley.

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.
