Encyclopedia > Archbishop of New Zealand

The Archbishop of New Zealand is the head of the Anglican church in the Province of New Zealand and has under his direction nine dioceses.

This is not to be confused with either the Bishop of New Zealand or the Bishop of Aotearoa. The diocese of New Zealand split in to the seven dioceses on mainland New Zealand (Christchurch, Waiapu, Wellington, Nelson, Dunedin and Waikato), and the remainer of the diocese renamed to the Diocese of Auckland. George Augustus Selwyn was the first Bishop of New Zealand.

The Archbishop of New Zealand has no permanent See; instead the Archbishopric is held by a Bishop who takes on the additional title.
