What is the Archdeaconry Synod? Who attends and what happens?
The Archdeaconry Synod is the annual meeting of Licensed Chaplains and Lay Representatives. It is an opportunity for renewal, study, reflection, fellowship, worship and some formal business. It is also a once-a-year occasion to meet others from around this large Archdeaconry, to exchange ideas and hopefully to be inspired to be the Church God calls us to be.
We welcome invited speakers and some guest observers too.

We’re looking forward to being able to meet again in person in 2021. The dates of 14 – 16 April 2021 have been reserved at the Domaine St Joseph (just outside Lyon, in Sainte-Foy-lès-Lyon) where we held the Synod in 2019.

We regret to announce that the 2020 Synod will not now take place, because of the worsening COVID-19 pandemic.
More information about policy and procedures in the light of this public health emergency will be issued by the Diocese in Europe.
See the page for all the details; you can find the presentations given the chaplaincy reports and some photos too.
