Synod Questions

Members of the Church of England General Synod have been sent the following email inviting questions for answer next month. As noted written answers will be given (and published); ie no supplementary questions will be possible.

Dear Synod members,

Mindful of the exceptionally high number of questions in February and July, the Business Committee has decided to use its powers under Standing Order 117(1) to give members the opportunity to submit questions for written answer between groups of sessions. This is a process last used in 2008.

The deadline is 12.00 on Friday, 8 November. Please send the questions to

Answers will be published on no later than Monday, 25 November.

Please also note that under SO 112(2), members can ask up to two questions, which should be addressed to one of the bodies accountable to the General Synod listed in SO 112(1).

Thank you very much.

Best regards,

Synod Support

This is unexpected and helpful. There were too many questions last time and the church of England did not show itself in the best light by having a large amount of questions on some of the topics, such as the reaffirmation of baptismal vows. Some of that session was not easy viewing.
I just hope that some of the written answers are more than just the ‘we are working on it and will let you know later’ type.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
