DEANERY SYNOD ELECTIONS 2023
Deanery Synod Lay Representatives
Every parish needs to elect new lay representatives to the deanery synod at the Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM) in 2023. The term of office of all existing elected lay representatives to the deanery synod will expire on 30 June 2023. Therefore, if they wish to continue to serve from 1 July 2023 they will need to be re-elected at the APCM. The newly elected representatives will hold office for a term of three years beginning on 1 July 2023.
