Elections to General Synod and Diocesan Synod

There will be elections this year to General Synod and Diocesan Synod

Elections to both the above synods take place this year:-

General Synod for a 5 year term.

Diocesan Synod for a 3 year term.

Any serving clergy or retired clergy with permission to officiate in the diocese and any communicant lay person who is on a church electoral roll in the Diocese (or the cathedral roll) and is 18 or above can stand. There is no need for lay candidates to be on a PCC, deanery synod or diocesan synod, although if elected they will be ex-officio on these bodies.

Nomination forms for the Diocesan Synod are available now and need to be returned to Middlewich Deanery by 1st June so time is tight.

For General Synod nomination papers will be available in July.

Please include these elections in your prayers and consider whether God is calling you to this important role in the Church.
