Diocesan Office Resources: Diocesan Synod

DIOCESAN SYNOD

The Diocesan Synod is the overarching governing body of the Diocese of Edinburgh.  Membership consists of principal office-holders, such as The Bishop and The Dean, as well as all instituted clergy or those holding a Licence or Commission, and a Lay Representative from each congregation.  Synod meets twice a year, in the Spring and in the Autumn.  It discusses Diocesan business as well as business required by the General Synod of the Scottish Episcopal Church.  A certain number of members, from the House of Clergy and the House of Laity, are elected to serve on General Synod as well.
