Deaneries and Rural Deans

The Diocese of Worcester is divided into two Archdeaconries, the Archdeaconry of Worcester and the Archdeaconry of Dudley and each of these are divided into a number of deaneries.

Each deanery has a Rural Dean (a member of the clergy) and a Lay Chair who are jointly responsible for pastoral care and co-ordination between the parishes.
