The Antiochian Orthodox Deanery of the United Kingdom and Ireland is a part of the Diocese of Western and Central Europe of the Church of Antioch. On June 17, 2008, the Holy Synod of Antioch has elected His Eminence John (Yaziji), former Titular Bishop of al-Hosn, as Metropolitan of Western Europe. His enthronement is scheduled to take place in Paris, France, on September 20-21, 2008.

The dean is Fr. Michael Harper, who has been functioning as Patriarchal Vicar in the United Kingdom and Ireland during the vacancy of the episcopacy of the diocese.

The deanery includes twelve full parishes (including a cathedral in London), as well as six missions. Most of the communities, with the exception of the cathedral, consist largely of converts from the Church of England.
