Archdeaconries are colour-coded.
The Diocese of Gibraltar in Europe (also called simply the Diocese in Europe) is geographically the largest diocese of the Church of England and arguably the largest diocese in the Anglican Communion, covering some one-sixth of the earth's landmass, including Moroccomarker, Europe (excluding the British Islesmarker but including Icelandmarker), Turkeymarker, and the territory of the former Soviet Unionmarker.

The cathedral is the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, Gibraltarmarker and it is headed by the Bishop of Gibraltar in Europe, who is assisted by the Suffragan Bishop in Europe. The current bishop is the Right Reverend Geoffrey Rowell, who was enthroned in Gibraltar Cathedral on 1 November 2001. The current suffragan bishop is the Right Reverend David Hamid, who was consecrated bishop on 17 October 2002. Pro-Cathedrals are St Paul's Anglican Cathedral, Vallettamarker, Maltamarker and Holy Trinity Cathedral, Brussels, Belgiummarker.

The diocese is part of the Province of Canterbury. It was created in 1842 and at that time covered all Anglican chaplaincies from Portugal to the Caspian Sea. In 1980 the diocese was amalgamated with the Jurisdiction of North and Central Europe and renamed the Diocese of Gibraltar in Europe. It is divided into seven archdeaconries.
