Representing The Diocese – Team Europe In York

The five representatives of the Diocese in Europe on the Church of England’s General Synod are meeting with the other 41 dioceses in York for the Summer sessions.

Pictured outside York Minster at the Sunday Eucharist on 12 July 2015 are (left to right) Rev Brian Llewellyn, Mrs Madeleine Holmes, Bishop Robert, Mrs Ann Turner and Canon Debbie Flach.

This is the final group of sessions of this General Synod and in the next few weeks elections will be taking place to find a new “Team Europe” for the next four years.

One of the decisions made in a recent meeting changed the allocation of members so that in future Bishop Robert will be joined by three clerical and three lay representatives. So it’s time to start praying and considering nominations for our new delegates in what will be a strengthened team.
