From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

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

The diocese covers not only the area of Gibraltar in British jurisdiction but also all of mainland Europe, Morocco and the territory of the former Soviet Union. The see is based in the City of Gibraltar where the seat is located at the Cathedral Church of the Holy Trinity. The bishop's residence, however, is in England at Bishop's Lodge in Worth, Crawley, West Sussex.

The office has existed since the union in 1980 of the see of Gibraltar (founded 1842) with the Jurisdiction of North and Central Europe of the see of London (headed by the suffragan bishop of Fulham). The current bishop is the Right Reverend Douglas Geoffrey Rowell, MA, PhD, DD, the Bishop of Gibraltar in Europe.
