The Archdeacon of Charing Cross was a senior ecclesiastical officer in charge of the Church of England in the City of Westminster. The archdeaconry was presumably created shortly before Klyberg's appointment in 1989. The archdeacon served directly under the Bishop of London, who takes direct responsibility for the Two Cities area since there was no area bishop.

On 16 June 2015, it was announced that from 1 January 2016 the Archdeacon of London would take responsibility for the whole Two Cities area, though a part-time Associate Archdeacon would also be appointed.
