The Deanery Synod is part of the way the Church of England gives people at different levels a chance to discuss key issues and organise the church's ministry and mission. It sits between the parishes with their Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) and the full diocese, with its Diocesan Synod. It is convened by an Area Dean and Lay Chair and consists of all the licensed clergy in the Deanery and lay people elected by the parishes at their Annual Parish Church Meeting. The lay members serve for three years.
The Synod meets three times a year, visiting different parts of the Deanery, and its business is organised by a small Standing and Pastoral Committee which has both clergy and lay members.
The following individuals are members of the Standing Committee, who plan and manage the business of Deanery Synod meetings.
