General Synod by-election
The General Synod elections which were due to be held in 2020 have been postponed until 2021 because of the pandemic.  Nonetheless there is currently a by-election taking place following the resignation of Jonathan Cryer who has been one of the three diocesan lay representatives on General Synod for the last five years.  The person elected will have the chance to attend two meetings of General Synod (November 2020 and July 2021) before the main elections take place in the autumn of 2021.
