Bishop of Peterborough


Bishop of Peterborough

The Bishop of Peterborough is the Ordinary of the Church of England Diocese of Peterborough in the Province of Canterbury.

The diocese covers the counties of Northamptonshire, Rutland and the Soke of Peterborough in Cambridgeshire and has its see in the City of Peterborough, where the seat is located at the Cathedral Church of Saint Peter, Saint Paul and Saint Andrew.

The Bishop's residence is Bishop's Lodging, The Palace, Peterborough, Cambridgeshire.

The office has been in existence since the foundation of the diocese on 4 September 1541 under King Henry VIII. The incumbent is the Right Reverend Dr. Ian Patrick Martyn Cundy DD, 37th Lord Bishop of Peterborough, who signs "Ian Petriburg".

The current Lord Bishop is one of the 26 diocesan bishops who sit in the House of Lords as Lords Spiritual.

As parts of the City of Peterborough are actually in the Diocese of Ely (those parishes south of the River Nene), the current Bishop of Peterborough has also been appointed as an Assistant Bishop in the Diocese of Ely with pastoral care for these parishes delegated to him by the Bishop of Ely.
