Oxford Diocesan Synod Nomination

From: the Revd Canon Ainsley Swift, Area Dean of Maidenhead and Windsor

The next triennium of Oxford Diocesan Synod begins on 1 August 2024. Maidenhead and Windsor is entitled to elect four lay members and I am acting as Returning Officer for the House of Laity. I am inviting anyone who would like to stand to complete the attached Nomination Form and return it to me at ainsley.swift@gmail.com by 4 June at the latest. Those elected will serve until 2027. Candidates will require a proposer and seconder who are existing members of the Deanery Synod. If you need a list of members’ names one can be obtained by emailing maidenhead.windsor.deanery@gmail.com .

Membership is not restricted to members of the Deanery Synod, although it is they who are the electorate. PCC secretaries are requested to circulate this email to PCC members and other members of their electoral roll.  A lay person is qualified for election by the House of Laity of a Deanery Synod as a member of the Diocesan Synod if the person is an actual communicant aged 16 or over. The attached leaflet gives further details about eligibility and explains what membership of Diocesan Synod involves.

In the event of more nominations than places, an election will be held, with the result to be announced by 9 July.
