Sharnbrook Deanery Synod

Sharnbrook Deanery Synod acts as an intermediary between the Parochial Church Councils of each parish in the Sharnbrook Deanery, and the St. Albans Diocesan Synod. The Synod meets approximately 6 times a year in Bletsoe Village Hall at 7.30pm with the Rural Dean in the chair.

The functions of a Deanery Synod are:
(a) to consider matters concerning the Church of England and to make provision for such matters in relation to their deanery and to consider and express their opinion on any other matters of religious or public interest;
(b) to bring together the views of the parishes of the deanery on common problems, to discuss and formulate common policies on those problems, to foster a sense of community and interdependence among those parishes, and generally to promote in the deanery the whole mission of the Church, pastoral, evangelistic, social and ecumenical;
(c) to make known and so far as appropriate put into effect any provision made by the diocesan synod;
(d) to consider the business of the diocesan synod, and particularly any matters referred to that synod by the General Synod, and to sound parochial opinion whenever they are required or consider it appropriate to do so;
(e) to raise such matters as the deanery synod consider appropriate with the diocesan synod.
