Elections for the new, three-year session of the Diocesan Synod are now taking place.
The Diocesan Synod is the main forum for discussion on Diocesan policy and its members are also members of the Diocesan Board of Finance which deals with financial matters relating to the Diocese.
If you would like to be nominated for election to Diocesan Synod please contact a Deanery Synod member in your parish, or your incumbent, if you are a member of the laity, and you will be guided through the process.
Any confirmed person who is on the electoral roll of a parish within the Diocese is eligible for nomination, although it is the membership of the deanery synods which is the electorate.
Clergy who are members of a deanery synod are eligible for nomination also.
Nominations close on 22nd June, elections will take place by 10th July and the new Diocesan Synod comes in to being on 1st August.
