Synodical Government in the Diocese


The Church of England is governed through a structure of Synods (or assemblies) that operate at all levels of the Church.  Each Synod is made up of clergy and laity and has a significant number of elected representatives.

For support and advice about any area of Synodical government, including queries regarding the Church Representation Rules for PCCs, Deanery Synods and Diocesan Synods, please contact Jayne Tarry, part of the Parish & Synod Support Department.


The Church Representation Rules are now available online.
