Deanery Synod Lay Members

Making It Easier > Making it easier for... > Our Parish Officers > Deanery Synod Lay Member

Lay members work collaboratively with the Area Dean and Lay Chair to support the mission of their Deanery.

Lay members play an important role in tending the relationship between Deanery Synod and the parishes or other groups they represent.

They also share the responsibility with the Area Dean and Lay Chair of establishing active teamwork within Synod, and building working relationships with other members across parish and group boundaries.

Deanery Mission & Pastoral Committee

Two lay members elected from Deanery Synod are on this committee alongside the Area Dean, Lay Chair, Diocesan representatives, and two clergy elected from Deanery Synod. 

We hope this section makes it easier for you to be a Deanery Synod Lay Member. If you can't find exactly what you are looking for, please try the 'Making it easier for...' menu for more roles.
