2015 Triennial Elections to Diocesan Synod and Diocesan Committees

A new Diocesan Synod is elected every three years by the members of the Deanery Synods.  One of the first duties of a new Diocesan Synod is to elect members to the Bishop's Council, the Diocesan Board of Education, the Parsonages Committee and the Vacancy in See Committee.

Bishop's Council
7 clergy and 8 laity have been elected to Bishop's Council.  They are:

  • Mrs Karen Armbrister
  • The Revd Stella Bailey
  • Mr Christopher Baker
  • The Revd Canon Barbara Clutton
  • Mr Tim Day-Pollard
  • Mrs Felicity Hawke
  • Mr Nick Hodges
  • The Revd Barry Jackson
  • The Revd Nick Leggett
  • The Revd Andy March
  • Mr Peter Rogers
  • The Revd Canon Dr David Stone
  • The Revd Canon Dr Jill Tucker
  • Dr Yvonne Warren
  • Mr David Wigman

As 7 clergy were nominated, there was no need for a ballot and the members were elected unopposed.  11 lay people stood for the 8 places for lay members and a sheet setting out the results of that ballot in full can be accessed via the links.  For more information on Bishop's Council, please click here.

Diocesan Board of Education
