Church of England Diocese of Lincoln Uffington

Deanery Synod

Deanery Synod - Two new representatives are needed for the new triennium

Within the synodical structure of the Church of England, deanery synod representatives hold a particularly important role. They elect both the lay Diocesan Synod members to represent their deaneries and the lay General Synod members to represent our Diocese. If the lay membership of the Diocesan and General Synods is to truly speak for all of us, it is important that our parishes elect as deanery synod members people who do actually reflect the local views.

The next deanery synod lay elections were due to take place as part of the 2020 Annual Parochial Church Meetings, within The Uffington Group these have had to be postponed due to Covid. 19 guidance on gatherings but we now have a new date for Annual Meetings at Uffington on Tuesday 22nd September at 7.30pm these will take place via zoom and should you wish to attend this meeting or have any interest in what takes place, please contact Fr Aran.

There will still be an election for our Deanery Synod representatives this year. To this end, A leaflet explaining the Deanery Synod Elections may be downloaded below. Please take a look at the leaflet as a reminder of the importance of the Synod and please think about completing a nomination form for election. If you know anyone who might be interested to stand, please ask them to contact;
