Synod Elections 2021


This year, elections are being held for people to join both the Diocesan Synod and the General Synod

A synod is an assembly of elected representatives at either a local (diocesan) level or national (general) level. It includes both clergy and lay members. 

Anyone who attends church in the diocese can be nominated as a lay member and we are keen to receive nominations from as wide a range of people as possible. 

Nominations have now closed for the Diocesan Synod, the decision-making and governance body for the Diocese of Bristol. 

Nominations have now closed for the General Synod, the decision-making and governance body for the whole of the Church of England.
