New Diocesan Synod Elected

Elections have been completed for Members of the new Diocesan Synod which begins its term of office next year.

The results (SEE HERE) show that half the House of Clergy are new to the Synod and in the House of Laity 14 of the 20 members have already served on Synod.

In some Archdeaconries seats were contested although in both the clergy and the laity other archdeaconry places were filled without an election.

The new Synod will formally meet in Cologne from 13 – 17 June 2016.
