Diocesan Council

About Diocesan Council

Diocesan Council meets monthly to look after the responsibilities of Synod between sessions. The Council has authority to further delegate its powers to individuals, committees or boards. Diocesan Council members are elected at Synod to serve a 3-year term, and one-third of members must retire each year.

Diocesan Council meets on the last Thursday of every month (except December). To arrange for agenda items to be put to Diocesan Council, please contact the Diocesan Manager as early as possible for information about timeframes and requirements.
