Deanery Synods

Each Deanery has a Deanery Synod, overseen by the Rural Dean and Lay Chair.

The Deanery Synod draws together the thoughts of the Church's life in the Deanery and is asked to consider matters referred to it from the Diocesan Synod and General Synod. It is also a mechanism for where the thoughts of the Parish(es) are initially heard beyond the Parochial Church council (PCC).
