Lancelot Andrewes Southwark and Newington Deanery

Next Deanery Synod Meeting

Diocese of Southwark Flag

Dear friends I am looking forward to Deanery Synod on Thursday 24 June at 7pm.  This is the first time the whole new synod will meet together so please make every effort to be there so that we can get our new term off to a great start! This will be by zoom.  

Here are the details: 

Meeting ID: 818 2328 0312Passcode: 237373 

However, if anyone is unable to use zoom please email Kirsty Burns ( or phone me (07585 113773) and we will make arrangements for a small number to attend in person probably at St George’s.

Here is the agenda:  As you will see we will be electing our Lay Chair and Secretary.  If anyone is interested in standing for either of these roles you would be very welcome to speak to me (07585 113773).    We will also be electing our representatives to Diocesan Synod.   There are 2 representatives for the House of Laity and 4 for the House of Clergy.   The Diocesan Synod is the main decision making body of the Diocese and we debate major issues of policy and interest  and set the strategic agenda for the diocese in terms of our priorities and budget.   I will take nominations on the night but it is always better to have nominations in advance.  

If you are struggling with the technology, I am happy to have the information in an email. I look forward to seeing you there. All good wishes Fr Jonathan
