Members of Diocesan Synod

The Church of England has a parliamentary system of representation called a synod. The highest ranking of these is General Synod, and within our diocese we have Diocesan Synod and Archdeaconry Synods.

Diocesan Synod meets to:

  • Consider matters concerning the Church of England
  • Make provision for these matters in relation to the Diocese
  • Consider and express an opinion on matters of religious or public interest
  • Advise the Bishop on matters on which he may consult Synod
  • Consider and express an opinion on any matters referred to it by the General Synod
  • Discussing matters raised by the Archdeaconry Synods
  • Act as the Diocesan Board of Finance

Diocesan Synod last met in May 2018. The notes are available here.
