As you may remember, the October Synod meeting marks the beginning of a new triennium with the election of a new Lay Chair. If you would like to stand, or know someone who you think would be a good candidate, then please complete a nomination form and return it to Kat by email to firstname.lastname@example.org NO LATER THAN 6 October.
Nomination forms can be found here in word format (to fill in on a computer) or in .pdf format (to print off and fill in by hand).
The Deanery Synod Meeting is still planned for Monday 25 October, with the section for Lay representatives starting at 6.30pm. Clergy will join from 7pm for refreshments followed by Holy Communion (sharing bread only) at 7.30pm. Following this, Rev Derek Winterburn, Vicar of St James’s Church Hampton Hill, will facilitate a conversation about how we are caring for God’s creation. Finally, we’ll have some brief notices and the appointment or election of our Deanery Synod Standing Committee. An agenda will be sent round nearer the time.
Warmest wishes and God bless,
