Stand for election to Diocesan Synod

The Diocesan Synod is the governing body of the Church of England in Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes. Alongside the Bishops, its membership is drawn from parishioners and clergy. This year is an election year for Diocesan Synod and every parishioner in the Diocese of Oxford is invited to consider standing. We’re particularly keen for Christians from under-represented parts of the Church to put themselves forward. Could that be you, or someone you know?

The presiding officers in this election are Area Deans (for House of Laity) and Deanery lay chairs (House of Clergy). The Area Dean or lay chair for your deanery will be happy to provide you with further information and can advise on how to submit a Diocesan Synod nomination form 2018 for your deanery.
