Diocese in Europe Measure is given final approval by General Synod


There was very good news for this Diocese in Europe from the July sessions of General Synod: The draft Diocese in Europe Measure was given final approval.

This measure gives power to the Church Commissioners and the Archbishops' Council to make financial provision for our Diocese.

Additionally, it brings our diocese into line with the other 43, in that items referred to it by the General Synod are now to be dealt with by our Diocesan Synod, rather than by Bishop's Council and Standing Committee.

The text of the measure is here.

  1. As a former Europe ordinand, it was a real delight to welcome Synod to our parish. Good to catch up with bishop Geoffrey. Till next year! Jan Nobel (Vicar of Heslington, York)
