Archdeacons' Visitations 2020

Every year, within the 42 dioceses of the Church of England, the Archdeacons Visitations take place. In the Diocese of Lichfield these are held in deanery groupings within each of the four Archdeaconries - Lichfield, Salop, Stoke-upon-Trent and Walsall - following the annual election of Churchwardens in May.

Formally, the Visitations are a court which all Clergy and Churchwardens are cited to attend. They take the form of a service, the key part of which is the official admittance of Churchwardens as office holders of the Diocesan Bishop. During the service, the Archdeacon delivers a sermon called the Archdeacons Charge, the aim of which is to offer advice, encouragement and support to parishes in general and Churchwardens in particular.

The locations of the Archdeacons' Visitations in 2020 are in the tables below. Please note that unless otherwise stated the Archdeacons will be there to receive any documentations from 6.45 with service commencing at 7.30.

Please note that all accounts should be submitted online before the Archdeacon's Visitation.
