Have you ever thought of standing for the General Synod of the Church of England? Well, maybe you should! We want to encourage a broad range of voices to our national decision-making body.

Standing for General Synod is an opportunity to represent your community and our Diocese at a national level.

Members of Synod have a say in national legislation that affects all parts of the Church of England. Together with the Westminster Parliament, it is the only body which can make national law for England.

In addition to legislation, members can also raise issues and contribute to debates on a wide range of social and policy matters of national and international significance. Watch the ‘Why you should stand for General Synod’ film here.

Nominations will open on 30th July 2021, and close on 8th September.
