Bishop of Edmonton (London)

The Bishop of Edmonton is an episcopal title used by a suffragan bishop of the Church of England Diocese of London in the Province of Canterbury, England.[1] The title takes its name after Edmonton, an area in the east of the London Borough of Enfield.

The current bishop is the Right Reverend Peter Wheatley, who began his ministry as suffragan bishop in March 1999.[2]

The episcopal title of "Bishop of Edmonton" is one of three that are duplicated in the Anglican Communion. The other Bishop of Edmonton is a diocesan bishop in Canada. Although recent bishops of Edmonton in the Church of England have opposed the ordination of women bishops, the current Bishop of Edmonton in the Anglican Church of Canada is a woman, as was her predecessor; the other two duplicated bishoprics in the Anglican Communion are at Rochester [United States and England], and at Newcastle [Australia and England].)

Since early November 2010, the Bishop of Edmonton has had responsibility for those clergy and parishes within the Diocese of London (and additionally, as a licensed assistant bishop, in the Dioceses of Southwark and Rochester) who does not agree with the ordination of women. These parishes were, from 1980 to 2010, served by the diocese's suffragan Bishop of Fulham.
