The Structure:

The Church in Wales is divided into six geographical areas, or dioceses. Each diocese is looked after by a Bishop and is a distinct administrative unit.

Each diocese is split into a number of Archdeaconries with an Archdeacon overseeing each area and each Archdeaconry is further split into a number of Deaneries.

Each Deanery has an Area Dean overseeing that area and each deanery is then divided into a number of Benefices.

A benefice is the description given to the area over which a cleric (eg. a vicar) has responsibility. A cleric may be put in charge of one parish, or of several.
