The active bishops of the Church of England are usually either diocesan bishops or suffragan bishops. Several also hold portfolios of national responsibility, as spokesperson bishops for the Church of England and/or as Lords Spiritual in the House of Lords.

Diocesan bishops

As there are 42 dioceses of the Church of England, there are 42 bishops diocesan (including vacancies). Of the 42: both archbishops and the Bishops of London, of Durham and of Winchester, sit in the House of Lords as Lords Spiritual ex officio; a further 21 sit there by seniority (of whom five had their seniority accelerated); the Bishop of Sodor and Man sits ex officio in the Legislative Council of the Isle of Man and also in Tynwald Court; fourteen diocesans are not currently Lords Spiritual; and the Bishop in Europe is ineligible to be a Lord Spiritual.

Lords Spiritual by virtue of seniority of service

Until 2015, the 21 longest-serving among the remaining diocesan bishops were eligible to sit in the House of Lords as Lords Spiritual. Since women became eligible as bishops in 2015, female diocesan bishops take precedence over male ones whenever a new vacancy in the Lords arises, in accordance with the Lords Spiritual (Women) Act 2015[17] (in force until 17 May 2025).[18]

House of Bishops

The membership of the General Synod's House of Bishops is:[231]

The following have been elected to serve in the Convocations for 2021–2026:[232]
  1. Ric Thorpe, Bishop suffragan of Islington (since 2021)[233]
  2. Bev Mason, Bishop suffragan of Warrington (since 2021)

  1. Alison White, Bishop suffragan of Hull

  3. Anne Hollinghurst, Bishop suffragan of Aston
  4. Karen Gorham, Bishop suffragan of Sherborne
